Scientists have proposed to produce electricity in the middle of the oceans
Scientists from Stanford University in California developed the concept of the construction of wind farms in the ocean. Construction in the Atlantic and Indian oceans will help to provide electricity to the whole world.
Anna Posner and Ken Caldeira studied the work of wind power plants on land and concluded that wind speed in the ocean is much higher.
The installation of wind turbines above the surface of the oceans will allow people to access huge amounts of energy and produce it more efficiently than on land.
If the wind farm was built on 3 million km2 in the Atlantic, the energy produced with its help, would have been equivalent to the total energy used today, from various sources.
Scientists recognize that the project will require many years of huge efforts, international cooperation and a solid investment. However, only two ocean stations in the Atlantic and Indian ocean will help supply energy to the whole world.
The winds, walking on the ocean will disperse the turbine and the blades are much stronger than winds on the shore, and thus increase the level of harvested energy from 1.5 V To 1 m2 to 6 m2 In 1, reports The Independent.
It is clarified that power generation of the North Atlantic wind power is seasonal: during the summer, the production will decline, however, accumulated over the autumn, winter and spring electricity will be sufficient to meet all the needs of the EU countries.
