THE ECONOMICS OF WIND ENERGY 9 TABLE Cost structure of a typical 2 MW wind turbine installed in Europe (€ ) INVESTMENT (€1,/MW) SHARE OF TOTAL COST % Turbine (ex works) Grid connection Foundation 80 Land rent 48 Electric installation 18 Consultancy 15 Financial costs 15 Road construction 11 the single goal of developing wind energy resources in developing countries. To this end, ATG has brought together researchers, engineers, and manufacturers from the United States wind energy industry to develop and improve designs, provide information, and offer consulting services. Our expertise includes both water pumping. An attempt to develop a simple framework for techno-economics evaluation of renewable energy (RE) systems for irrigation water pumping has been made. The unit cost of water delivered and unit cost of useful energy delivered by the RE systems have been by: 1. Two wind turbine units with induction generators have been examined for irrigation pumping. A kW, horizontal-axis wind turbine with two blades and .
working in this area. The Wind Energy Resource Analysis (WERA) software, provided with the book, is an effective tool for wind energy practitioners for as-sessing the energy potential and simulating turbine performance at prospective sites. The introductory chapter narrates the historic development of . The Wind Energy Payback Period Workbook is a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet tool that can help you analyze the economics of a small wind electric system and decide whether wind energy will work for you. It asks you to provide information about how you will finance the system, the characteristics of your site, and the properties of the system you. These energy resources are freely available throughout the world. It is one of the zero emission energy sources. The wind energy is used mainly for two purposes namely irrigation (water pumping) and electricity generation. The prospect of wind energy can be analyzed by different methods. harvest the wind energy for water pumping at low win d speed reg ions. Most win dmills for wa ter- pumping applications are of the h orizontal-a xis v ar iety, and have.

It also presents a brief review of the utilization of energy for irrigation pumping and the practices that can be adopted by pump Irriga- tors to conserve energy used for this important production operation. Wind pumps have also been used in SE Asia and China for longer than in Europe, mainly for irrigation or for pumping sea water into drying pans for sea salt production. The Chinese sail windpump (Fig. ) was first used over a thousand years ago and tens if not hundreds of thousands, are still in use in Hubei, Henan and North Jiangsu.
