The North Atlantic's Wind Power Resources Can Meet The Global Winter Electricity Demand

- Nov 06, 2017-

Chinese energy storage network: researchers at the Carnegie institution of the United States and Stanford university published their findings on the potential of offshore wind power in the latest issue of the proceedings of the national academy of sciences.

The study of Kansas in the United States an onshore wind power of the actual output equal to the north Atlantic area of offshore wind potential output compare, found the land wind can send power 1.5 watts per square meter, and offshore wind power output to 6 watts per square meter, 70% higher than that of the latter than the former.


Computer model simulation results show that in the winter of strong wind, the north Atlantic ocean wind power resources can meet current global power demand;

And in the summer, the north Atlantic offshore wind power supply can meet all the American electricity demand.
