There is an increasing global demand for energy produced from renewable sources such as wind, tidal, wave, sun and water. Fred. Olsen Renewables aims to be a significant generator of renewable power. It currently owns and operates several wind farms providing clean electricity to the consumers.
Energy is captured from the wind using large rotor blades connected to a gearbox and generator. These turbines are mounted on high towers to take best advantage of the wind conditions.
Tidal and Wave Energy
The high levels of energy contained in wave and tidal flows have the potential to generate large amounts of power.
Solar panels convert the energy contained in sunlight directly into heat or electricity.
Fast flowing rivers have been used for centuries to generate power and today hydro power is the largest contributor of renewable energy.
