Improving wind farm energy production: The prospect of vortex generators

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.

Nuclear power: Looking for the truth(s) about safety

By | Whitepaper

Two underlying concepts determine our perception of nuclear energy and how safe it is: its enormous energetic content and its poisonous potential due to ionizing radiation. This paper aims to shed light on the underlying disagreements in the academic and political discussions surrounding human safety in nuclear power in order to challenge our beliefs and emotions. It is part of a series of White Papers on the subject of the different elements of the nuclear energy debate, previously presented by Greenfish in this paper.
