Scotland's biggest offshore wind farm complete
Each of the 84 turbines, at 188m from sea level to blade tip, stands taller than the London Eye and Beatrice is the largest offshore wind farm in the world to use jacket foundations. These jackets weigh around 1,000 tonnes each and are the deepest water fixed foundations of any wind farm in the world, installed in water depths of over 56m.

Next Electric Vehicles Get Ultra Lightweight Motors
In electric aircraft, motor power-to-weight ratio is paramount for endurance, the main constraint on sales. You cannot lug ever more battery weight to get range. Indeed, better motors mean less battery in a land, water or air vehicle. The new IDTechEx Research report, "Electric Motors for Electric Vehicles: Land, Water, Air 2019-2029" explains the new emphasis on power-to-weight ratio with good efficiency.
SniffPhone detects cancer from breath
SniffPhone, currently in its prototype phase, enables early diagnosis of gastric cancer from a person's exhaled breath. The new method may revolutionise cancer screening all over the world.
Weland Solutions sets focus on automation
The result of one year's intensive work at Weland Solutions' development department is here; a brand new fully automatic goods to man solution.
Electric Vehicles: Everything is Changing Europe 2019
The electric vehicle population has accelerated around the world, surpassing four million units for the first time in 2018. Producers have responded to consumer's range anxiety by increasing the available range per charge in their vehicles. However, ultimately the deployment of electric vehicles will depend on the deployment of ubiquitous chargers, which can also help mitigate peak energy demand on the grid with v2g functionality.
Eviation,partners with Siemens on propulsion for electric plane
Eviation Aircraft, has selected Siemens to provide high-power, all-electric propulsion systems for Eviation's fleet of regional Alice electric planes.
India's first grid scale energy storage system
AES India has started construction on India's first utility-scale energy storage system, a 10 megawatt solution that will serve the electric grid.
Vestas leads break-away group of big four turbine makers
Developers commissioned a little over 45GW of onshore wind turbines globally in 2018 compared with 47GW a year earlier. Just four manufacturers accounted for more than half, or 57%, of the machines deployed: Denmark's Vestas, China's Goldwind, GE Renewable Energy of the US and Spain's Siemens Gamesa.
Out of Academia, Into Industry: Printed Electronics Business
Printed, Flexible and Organic Electronics is a market worth $31.6 Billion in 2018, according to IDTechEx Research. The majority of that is for OLED displays, with glass-based versions now entering their golden age and foldable OLEDs and printed OLEDs now entering a phase of commercial growth. Then there is the near $2 Billion market for conductive ink used in many diverse applications and the $3.6 Billion market for sensors, mainly comprising of biosensors so far.
