Once the wind farms come online, the additional capacity will help Google reach its goal of purchasing enough renewable energy to match its energy consumption for global operations.
Goldwind announced the release of its GW4S smart wind turbine.
These wind turbines work by turning the kinetic energy from the wind into mechanical energy through a propeller, and into electrical power thanks to an alternator.
The UK generates more electricity from offshore wind than any other country in the world with around 5% of our annual electrical energy coming from the sector.
At 14 storeys high, the wind turbine comes with three 10.5-metre long-span rotor blades that produces an electrical output rating of 100 kilowatts, enough to power 45 four-room apartment units a year.
In general, the abundance of the airborne wind energy resources increases with altitude.
