Compare the effectivenesss of wind turbines based on the capacity factor of the project.

Use Capacity Factor Comparison to see how wind turbines compare in the real world over many years, month by month. All wind turbines are clearly not the same.

Renewables Map is possibly the only resource that links wind turbine make and model directly to capacity factor for all projects over 500kW.

Climate change: Green energy plant threat to wilderness areas
Researchers found that over 2,200 green energy plants have been built within the boundaries of the Earth's remaining wilderness. They say that around 17% of renewable facilities globally are located in protected regions.
Climate change: Will planting millions of trees really save the planet?
From Greta Thunberg to Donald Trump and airlines to oil companies, everyone is suddenly going crazy for trees. The UK government has pledged to plant millions a year while other countries have schemes running into billions.
Race Bank Offshore Windfarm
The 580MW Race Bank, developed by Ørsted (formally DONG Energy), is located in the Greater Wash region, approximately 27km off the UK east coast. It is one of the biggest offshore windfarms in the world.
Northern Ireland's biggest solar farm is switched on
Solar company Lightsource Renewable Energy said the Maghaberry Airfield project would provide over 32 MW of clean energy into the grid - enough to power more than 11,000 homes.
Race Bank wind farm
Race Bank Wind Farm is a 573 MW Round 2 offshore wind farm located 27 km north of Blakeney Point off the coast of Norfolk, and 28 km east of Chapel St Leonards off the Lincolnshire coast in the North Sea. The farm was commissioned in February 2018.
