Life-cycle emissions of electric cars are fraction of fossil-fuelled vehicles
Wind Turbine for Tokelau
November 28, 2018
Early 2019 Future Energy will install a PSW German design and built wind turbine supplementing the solar array on the atolls.
Tokelau is a remote group of atolls in the South Pacific Ocean, halfway between Hawaii and New Zealand, of which it's a territory. It's usually accessed by boat from Samoa, a trip that can take around 24 hours. Nukunonu atoll contains accommodation and a clear lagoon rich in marine life. Fakaofo has swimming pigs that famously catch fish near its coral reef.
Tokelau was the first nation in the world to go 100% solar in 2012. Now the country is aiming to keep its fully renewable energy status in the future using wind power. This is going to reduce the need for diesel fuel backup in prolonged times of cloudy weather, and when the solar cell system needs maintenance.
