Abstract:

RESEARCHERS ARE EXPANDING AND DEVELOPING WIND TURBINE TECHNOLOGY FOR POLAR APPLICATIONS AS AN AVENUE TO EXPANDING THE ABILITY TO DEVELOP WIND AND WIND HYBRID ENERGY PROJECTS IN COLD WEATHER, AND IN ARCTIC AND POLAR ENVIRONMENTS. THE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM IS FOCUSED ON THE IDENTIFICATION OF TECHNICAL PROBLEMS SPECIFICALLY RELATED TO THE POLAR ENVIRONMENT, AND PERFORMING ANALYSIS, DETAILED ENGINEERING, AND CONCEPTUAL DESIGNS TO ADDRESS THE SPECIFIC SET OF IDENTIFIED CONCERNS. THE OUTCOME OF THE PROGRAM WILL BE THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN EXPANDED LINE OF WIND TURBINES FOR A WIDE RANGE OF COMMERCIAL COLD REGIONS APPLICATIONS. THESE NEW TURBINES WILL FILL A VOID IN THE CURRENT MARKETPLACE, AND WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE A SIGNIFICANT REDUCTION IN COST OF ELECTRICAL ENERGY IN POLAR REGIONS. THIS PROGRAM MAKES SENSE FROM BOTH ECONOMIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL PERSPECTIVES. NOT ONLY CAN ENERGY BE SUPPLIED AT A LOWER COST PER KILOWATT HOUR BUT ALSO FOSSIL FUEL CONSUMPTION AND TRANSPORTATION CAN BE GREATLY REDUCED.
