Planted atop a wind turbine — one of a few dozen at his work site in Sauk Centre, Minnesota — Osborn was diagnosing a weather sensor. Osborn’s […]

World’s Largest Wind Turbine Will Be Taller Than Empire State Building

By: Lorraine Chow When it comes to the latest wind turbine technologies, size matters. A group of six institutions and universities is designing an offshore wind turbine that will stand 500 meters in height. That’s taller than the Eiffel Tower and the Empire State Building. The research team, led by researchers at the University of Virginia, believes that its wind turbine concept will […]
