Wind is a form of solar energy, because wind is cased by a combination of sun-heated atmosphere, earth rotation, and irregularities on the earth’s surface. You can use the energy generated by the sun and wind to power the grid indefinitely.
Wind energy is mechanical energy generated by wind or other forms of renewable energy. Using wind energy to generate electricity has benefits, which we will discuss in this article.
Benefits of Wind Energy
Wind power is inexpensive. After the production tax credit, the utility-scale…
The CanREA 2050 Vision calls for 5 significant tasks and 15 urgent actions needed from utilities, governments, industry members, regulators, and system operators, who have to participate in implementing these pivotal technologies on a broad scale sustainably and responsibly.
With that said, these are the five tasks Canada must undertake to achieve its Net-Zero greenhouse gas emissions goal by 2050.
Task #1: Decarbonize the country’s production of electricity by 2035.
To achieve Net-Zero GHG emissions, Canada has to implement the Clean Electricity Standard that limits GHG emissions and requires the…
We don’t have the time left to waste!
Climate change and global warming are the two biggest challenges humanity is facing. Canada has made bold commitments to cut down its greenhouse gas emissions by 40 to 45% from the year 2005 to the year 2030.
Aside from that, the country also aims to achieve Net-Zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. However, it has only succeeded in keeping its GHG emissions but not reducing them.
With that said, the CanREA 2050 Vision movement explains why the country needs a robust and effective boost from solar energy, wind energy, and energy repository technologies, as it sets out a …
So, what should you know about wind energy and wind turbines?
Wind Energy Overview
Wind energy has been in use for many years to power households, pump water from water wells, power sailboats, as well as power cooling and heating appliances in offices and homes.
Today, the ongoing increasing demands for fossil fuel and the rising of the prices of essential resources have all been being invested in the fostering of wind energy.
Of course, wind energy has both perks and drawbacks. For…
Canada’s solar, wind, and energy storage technology industries are ready to take the Net-Zero greenhouse gas emissions challenge.
Canada’s solar energy, wind energy, and energy-storage tech industries are eager to start creating and delivering the pivotal capacities needed to enable the country to attain its net-zero greenhouse gas emissions goal.
These tech industries have a significant role in keeping a sustainable and responsible energy transition.
As new capacities are created …
Economic rehab investments amid the COVID-19 pandemic must fuel growth in solar energy, wind energy, and energy-storage technologies.
Canada is making sustained progress in alleviating the negative impacts brought by the rampage of COVID-19 on Canadian health as well as the economy of the country.
Although the pandemic isn’t over yet, the attention of the public is shifting to the challenge of how the government can boost economic recovery.
Canada is currently facing…
Although Alberta is renowned as Canada’s capital for its petroleum industry, the province has also become the country’s key destination for the development of the solar and wind energy industry.
Towards the end part of the year 2019 and throughout 2020, the developers of solar and wind energy have announced a sustained flow of new projects.
Apart from the big-scale renewable projects in Alberta for the past year, the developers in the province have also announced the contract with an off-taker that agreed to make a purchase of carbon credits and an electricity bundle.
While it is one of the best ways to generate electricity since it’s a clean and renewable energy source and can cut down greenhouse gas emissions simultaneously, it also comes with a few setbacks, just like its other energy-generation technology counterparts.
Understanding these drawbacks is essential if we want to optimize wind energy’s use. With that said, below is a rundown of the possible disadvantages associated with wind turbines.
1. Noise Pollution
We live in a time of fast and wide-encompassing advancements. However, among the most vital transitions in action today, the most notable one is in the manner of how we produce, manage, and utilize energy.
In this case, Canada’s energy transition is being directed by the changing preference of customers, environmental initiatives, and technological advancements.
The energy transition movement directs Canada to a future that will make energy efficiency a major priority. This movement …
Even until now, many people still don’t have the complete and correct knowledge about windmills and how they work. Many associate it with ancient times, particularly the pre-industrial revolution era.
However, while many people may not know, there’s currently a rapidly rising demand for giant and technologically-advanced windmills worldwide.
In this quick guide, you’ll discover several facts about windmills and the benefits they have to offer.
