GE Renewable Energy has unveiled its brand-new 4.8–158 onshore wind turbine, equipped with a 158-meter rotor and a range of tip heights up to 240 meters. The combination of a larger rotor and tall towers enables the turbine to take advantage of higher wind speeds and produce more energy. The latest turbine also features high tech blades, improved loads and controls, and taller, more cost-effective towers. The innovative features have been developed in close partnerships with LM Wind Power, Blade Dynamics and GE’s Global Research Center.

Methanol ‘Green’ Fuel Cell Has Potential To Transform Large Scale Transport

Earlier this week, the MS innogy commenced operations for green tours on the beautiful Lake Baldeneysee. The passenger vessel, is the first in Germany to be powered by methanol fuel cells, is a part of innogy’s “greenfuel” project where they demonstrate the entire value chain of environmentally friendly methanol, from a green production of methanol using CO2 from the surrounding air, green electricity, and water, to the use of methanol as a fuel in the excursion vessel and in cars, ships, and aircraft. The demonstration took place in Essen – this year’s “Green Capital of Europe” and went hand in hand with the ambitious transition the city is undergoing in reinventing itself as a “Green City”.

Paradigm Shift For Fueling Transportation? Innogy Presents Alternative To Oil

The energy revolution is now also picking up speed in transportation. In the “Green Capital of Europe-Essen 2017”, MS innogy was christened and put into operation as a regular passenger vessel. It’s powered by an environmentally friendly methanol fuel cell. The energy required for the whole operation comes entirely from renewables. Peter Terium, CEO, innogy SE said – “with MS innogy we are enabling people to experience the energy revolution directly; show in a very practical way what a clean energy future without oil could look like. We can do this by producing green fuels such as methanol with renewable energy and using them to drive environmentally friendly ships, aircraft and heavy goods transport”
