The EcoSwing Project. superconductive technology for the wind power industry

FuturENERGY November 18

Superconductors clearly have the potential to be a key enabling technology of the 21st century. Now this technology has matured sufficiently to go one step further to a relevant demonstration in the field of renewables. The world’s first superconducting wind turbine will be installed this year off the coast of Denmark, a landmark achievement by the EcoSwing EU-funded project, that is set to revolutionise the wind energy industry through the deployment of lighter, more cost efficient and more powerful generators.
