The May 2005 MIT Technolgy Review reports that up to 25% of additional energy added to Europe’s grid may come from wind. A multitude of factors must be considered when evaluating how to maximize this energy output, and contradicting theories exist among industry leaders. For instance, some feel that harnessing as much power as possible in an individual windmill is the best way to go in order to reduce the cost per kilowatt hour, and in order to do so, windmills must be built as big as possible. On the flipside of this argument is that if mechanical problems arise, they are more challenging to offset, because each individual unit is responsbible for a greater energy output. Numerous other cosideration abound. Read More…
