cost for wind electricity is already lower than all other forms of electricity production and highly competitive with the
lowest cost electricity derived from coal that is producing GHG and other unhealthy and serious pollution.
INTERNATIONAL WIND ENERGY
latest data at middle of 2007, installed wind GW capacities are 20.6 for Germany, 12.8 for Spain, 12.6 for USA, 7.3 for India. Denmark generates over 20% of its electricity with wind turbines, the highest percentage of any country and is
fifth in the world in total wind power generation.
and progressively increasing GW capacities are being installed in many countries of the world. As per World Wind Energy Assoc
total GW capacity could increase to 160 by the year 2010. Growth of wind energy over the last two decades has truly been phenomenon.
COMPRESSED AIR ENERGY STORAGE (CAES) FOR DISPATCHABLE WIND ENERGY
the wind blows, lift is created on the turbine blades, spinning the compressor inside the nacelle. The compressor pumps air
to over 100 atmospheres of pressure and sends the air down the tower into an underground network of high-pressure pipes. The
high-pressure pipeline network collects and stores 6-12 hours of energy. If the project is sited near a geologic feature such
as a salt dome, aquifer, limestone cavern, or depleted gas field, energy storage times can exceed weeks and even months. Similar
projects are being pursued to transform intermittent wind to base load dispatchable energy.
includes an electrical, two mechanical
engineers, a civil engineer and a financial analyst and multiple renewable energy professionals and interns. All our engineers
are registered professional engineers (PE) and few are Certified Energy Managers (CEM). Our group also maintains an extensive
network of professional partnerships which are able to bring specific skills and resources to any project and to many locations.
of our professionals including few network professionals regularly participate in wind energy issues to deal with technology,
engineering, permitting, financial and political issues. Professionals regularly contribute to major industry journals and
attend meeting, seminars organized by AWEA, NJ
Small wind Assoc to exchange views and ideas with other industry professionals. Member speaks on issues at seminars
WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU
of environmental benefits and stabilized energy price of renewable energy, generous incentives like production and tax credits,
accelerated depreciation, outright grants and guaranteed low cost loans etc are available. Because of free fuel and low M
& O, energy price is low and stable.
group has worked on wind resource studies, PPAa and provided engineering and procurement services for projects most of which
have quicker pay back periods.
are a number of makers around the world like GE wind, NEG-Micon, VESTAS, GAMESA, NORDEX, SUZLON, SIEMENS, Mitshubishi who are improving their products for higher efficiency and reliability in on and off shore applications
around the world. Few small turbine makers are Bergey, Northern, Jacobs.
Energy Group has over the years provided professional and procurement services to develop and engineer Wind projects in New Jersey, Pennsylvania including India,
Kazakhstan and few African nations.
