Full-scale floating wind turbine…

An awesome article about the first ‘floating’ off-shore wind turbine.

This makes so much sense and will mean hitherto unviable areas can be opened up. Seeing how the trend for on-shore turbines is for fewer and fewer to be granted planning permission, the obvious solution is to focus everything on the much larger off-shore turbines, where the wind is stronger and there are obviously no residents to object. There are larger concerns though, including providing new power infrastructures to transport the energy to the areas of demand.
