The wind power experts Iberdrola and Gamesa launch a new system called “WindCORE + WindOne”, with which wind turbines by any manufacturer can be managed from afar.
By using longer blades and fine-tuning them into more aerodynamic shapes, manufacturers are squeezing more and more performance out of their wind turbines. But the background noise caused by stalling continues to grate on some people’s nerves. The phenomenon requires more than just a psychologist.
The U.S. Department of Commerce has imposed anti-dumping duties of more than 50% on solar products from China and 20% on products from Taiwan. The process was initiated by the American subsidiary of the German solar company SolarWorld AG.
