Iceland introduces geothermal energy to China

Iceland, a country that highly manipulates geothermal energy, will deliver its knowledge to China.

Wind turbines convert the wind's kinetic energy into electrical energy. As wind farms utilize more and more windmills, their efficiency is significantly reduced.

The construction of the first offshore wind farm has just started on US ground in Block Island , a small island 13 miles south of Rhode Island, last Monday. Upon completion, the wind farm will supply all homes and businesses on Block Island with 30-megawatts of electricity. This is the first long awaited step in the offshore wind farm industry on U.S. ground and hopes are expressed that many more projects will follow.
