An environmental standards information portal for Europe

Europe has a vast wealth of research results that support standards in relation to environmental aspects such as air, water, soil and waste. SIPE, an EU-funded project, brings all these results together and combines them with information on standards and policies in a single dedicated web-based portal.

Rules to cut carbon emissions also reduce air pollution harmful to people, environment

Setting strong standards for climate-changing carbon emissions from power plants would provide an added bonus - reductions in other air pollutants that can make people sick; damage forests, crops, and lakes; and harm fish and wildlife. This, according to a first-of-its-kind study released today by scientists who mapped the potential environmental and human health benefits of power plant carbon standards.

A new concept to improve power production performance of wind turbines in a wind farm

A modern wind farm usually consists of multiple wind turbines arranged in an organized pattern or array. Wake interferences among wind turbines have been found to affect the performance of the wind turbines significantly. Researchers studied the effects of relative rotation direction of wind turbines on the wake interferences among tandem turbines for improved power production performance of wind turbines in a wind farm.
