The Sustainable Development Goals Report 2020 launched in early July finds growing food insecurity, deterioration of the natural environment, and persistent inequalities remain. Now, due to Covid-19, the world is facing unprecedented challenges.
Our current situation means our focus should be (and is) on meeting immediate needs. And this may continue for a while. However, we should not lose sight of our long-term ambitions.
A NEW factory dedicated to turning plastic waste into material for roads and car parks has opened, as part of efforts to tackle ocean pollution.
Vertical Axis Wind Turbines (VAWTs) represent a unique form of power-generating technology. Historically, they have been relegated to fulfilling a small niche market in commercially available wind turbines due to their “yaw-less” design. Current VAWT designs lag behind their Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine (HAWT) counterparts in terms of efficiency, as measured by their power coefficient. However, new research suggests that these types of wind turbines may be better suited for wind farm installations than previously thought. In this chapter VAWT farm research will be reviewed and discussed. This will then be followed by an overview of different parameters for VAWT design, with an eye toward designs suitable for installation in an optimized wind farm.
