Meaningful carbon compensation: From off- to in-setting emissions

By | Whitepaper

In 2006, only 0.03% of the worldwide CO2 emissions were compensated for. But since then, the number of companies adopting offsetting practices has been growing.

By | Whitepaper

This paper highlights the overall impact of VGs on typical wind farms from a technical point of view. First, we begin with an introduction on the need for VGs and the working principle, then we delve into some factors to consider in terms of maximizing VG efficiency. Subsequently, the estimated impact on Annual Energy Production (AEP), the environment and the turbines are analysed before we offer our conclusion.
