      Characteristics of the UK wind resource: Long-term patterns and
    » 2.2 MiB - 1,025 hits - October 16, 2008
    The ability of wind power to reliably contribute energy to electricity networks is directly related to the characteristics of the wind resource. An analysis of the characteristics of the wind power resource of the United Kingdom has been carried out, based on modelling of hourly observed wind speed data from 66 onshore weather recording sites for the period 1970–2003. Patterns of wind power availability are presented, with the data demonstrating that the output from large-scale wind power development in the UK has distinct patterns of monthly and hourly variability. The extent and frequency of high and low wind power events is assessed, and wind power data are matched with electricity demand data to examine the relationship between wind power output and electricity demand. It is demonstrated that wind power output in the UK has a weak, positive correlation to current electricity demand patterns; during peak demand periods, the capacity factor of wind power in the UK is around 30% higher than the annual average capacity factor. Comments on the relevance of these findings to modelling the impact of wind-generated electricity on existing electricity networks are given. r 2005 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

      Fresh water and renewable energy in chinese deserts, halting desertification - ADRECS
    » 881.8 KiB - 9,053 hits - November 18, 2008
    ADRECS - Aerially Delivered Re-forestation and Erosion Control System which can be applied in any desert area but in particular to the Gobi and other deserts in central China. The rapidly growing Chinese deserts are extremely serious in their potential effects on world food production. Increasing agricultural land loss, due to overgrazing (over millenia) is causing China to export its desertification to eg the Amazon rain forest, in terms of its destruction and replacment with soya plantations, thus putting pressure on climate and food resources world wide. The ADRECS proposal claims to address this issue, arresting the desertification and replacing it with a vast renewable energy, sea water desalination and food production system linked to Europe by HVDC lines and the export of by tanker ammonia as a vehicle fuel. Calculations show that using aeroplanes and heavy lift helicopters the Gobi could be transformed in a matter of decades.
