Swedish company Modvion have constructed a wood-based wind turbine demonstration unit, aiming to provide similar durability to metal designs with lighter and cheaper materials. Their purchase by the ventures arm of turbine giant Vestas means their business seems set to scale-up in coming years. Is the future of onshore wind in wood? We look at the tech, the business proposition, and Vestas’ plans for the company.
Also in this issue, we consult with experts to explore the potential of smart home energy and investigate Enegix Energy's plans to build the world's largest green hydrogen plant in Brazil.
Plus, we look into the needed infrastructure changes for half-hourly settlement, dig deeper into the implications of the storm that devastated Texas' power grid earlier this year, and speak to LF Energy about open source innovation in the energy industry.
