The potential of supplementing Lincoln College's static energy requirements using wind energy : [dissertation], Diploma in Natural Resources [Lincoln College]
The potential to make use of the wind energy available at Lincoln College has long been recognised. In fact recommendations to make use of this energy source date at least as far back at 18 July 1880, at which time the then Director of the College, Mr N.E. Ivey recommended "that a windmill be erected for the supply of water to the dairy and farm buildings generally". The "desirability of supplying the school buildings with water by wind power" was also noted, especially in times of drought when the rain water tanks were emptied. This report looks at the potential of supplementing the College's static energy, based on the present state of wind power technology. It should be noted that this is a technology which is presently developing very rapidly, due largely to fossil fuels becoming increasingly scarce, while the demand for energy is continually increasing. It is apparent, therefore, that any estimates relating to power output and cost are likely to be significantly affected in the short term by technological advances.... [Show full abstract]
