Wind Energy refers to the harnessing of both offshore wind and land-based wind. Wind turbine technology is very similar for land-based and offshore wind; nearly all commercial windfarms are composed of three-bladed turbines. Offshore wind turbines have several foundation designs, including monopoles, tripod fixed bottom, gravity foundations, gravity tripod, and floating. 

 

More information on these wind energy technology types can be found on the Glossary page. Here, you will also find information about stressors associated with device components and potential environmental receptors, the tags by which Tethys organizes information.

 

 

WREN

WREN (Working Together to Resolve Environmental Effects of Wind Energy)  is an international collaborative project focused on connecting wind energy practitioners from around the world around environmental issues. More information on WREN can be found at the About WREN page.
