Norway’s Answer To Wind Power Intermittency Lies Offshore – Study

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on offshoreWIND.biz.

This is the first paragraph.

SINTEF has revealed in its recent study that there is no statistical covariation or systematic correlation in time between the occurrence of offshore wind conditions in southern and northern Norway, and adds that this knowledge will increase the commercial value of Norwegian offshore wind energy.

It does seem lucky for the Norwegians, that their wind farms appear to be able to supply a more constant amount of electricity, than many of those against wind farms would have you believe.

I hope that a reputable UK agency or university, is doing a similar analysis for UK wind farms.

  1. All you need is to have a wide spread of windmills because this averages out the wind generation.

    Tide power generation would be even more reliable.
