-- Wind Power --
Many countries are now investing in wind turbine technology, helping it become more efficient and planet friendly. Companies, too, are joining hands iwth the industry... According to JapanFS.org, Watami - a large Japanese restaurant chain - has partnered with a local wind power project to build a wind turbine, increasing its use of renewable energy and reducing its carbon dioxide.
Everything from changing wind patterns, gale wind forces, storms and wildlife migration are being examined and that information is constantly improving the technology. Experimenting with self-adjusting blades, folding blades, colors and now... floating wind farms.
Floating wind farms are now being used to enable multi-use of ocean space because interestingly, it doesn’t interrupt fisheries, or protected habitat. If they are put out far enough from shorelines, they won't be disturbing views either.
According to a report on News.bbc.co.uk... placing wind farms on the ocean takes advantage of stronger, more consistant winds. It provides an opportuinity to access green energy for countries with limited land resources as well.
