  • Offshore Wind Farm Could ‘Power the World’  It’s a low-pressure job. Land-based windmills have long provided alternative energy, but their effectiveness is limited by “wind shadows” caused by each turbine slowing the air and reducing the energy available to others. But a new study suggests that offshore wind farms could be the solution: Low-pressure systems on open water keep speed and power more constant. Researchers say that not only could offshore turbines more than triple the output of their land-based counterparts, but that one massive North Atlantic wind farm could potentially power the entire world.  Quartz
