Wind energy is becoming increasingly economical, reducing dependence on fossil fuels and air pollution. Despite its great potential, wind power has been criticised for some time, or rather always. For a long time now, there have been many myths about wind energy. We would like to address these myths and explain this issue as well.
Wind energy is an essential part of the energy transformation and contributes significantly to the achievement of climate goals. Nevertheless, the construction of wind turbines is an intervention in nature and landscape – therefore, nature conservation must be considered during the planning and construction phase.
Intelligent solutions for more efficient wind farms. Artificial intelligence is already being used in many areas. Whether predictive maintenance, production forecasts or autonomous driving – AI is used in almost all industries. So, why not also in the field of renewable energies, more specifically wind energy?
In the aerospace sector, 3D-printed components are pretty interesting. They can be produced fast, cost-effectively and are much lighter than conventional components. This reduces dependence on suppliers, there are lower emissions and reduces fuel consumption in aircraft for example.
The use of unmanned aviation is growing rapidly in both the civil and commercial sectors. Of course, it doesn’t remain unnoticed – more and more people are coming into contact with the new technology in their private or business lives. Therefore, the legitimate question arises: Will the use of drones be accepted by the population?
