Executive summary
The report provides an analysis of the nonmarket issues of the wind power market and provides information relating to wind power projects in Canada. The report aims to help communities balance local concerns with wider environmental needs, thereby allowing the benefits of renewable energy to be realized through careful design and consultation. Additionally, it also provides a profile of a major wind power company in Canada.
Problem
Electricity generation produces more pollution than virtually any other single industry in Canada. Pollution, air quality, acid rain, nuclear waste and global warming are the unwanted side effects of traditional power production that endanger the environment. Every day, many fossil fuel consuming contraptions spew out gases that pollute the environment. However, when the fuel supplies for these devices run out, they will grind to a halt. To prevent this, Canada needs to find an alternative to unstable and polluting energy sources.
Purpose
The purpose of this report is to examine wind energy as alternative energy source and effectiveness at reducing emissions by replacing power generated from fossil fuels. Scope
The report will examine wind power as an alternative energy source and nonmarket issues. Wind power usage in Canada has been growing at a significant rate in the past few years and has generated considerable interest in industry, government and the public.
Introduction
As a renewable energy source, wind power is gaining popularity as an alternative to fossil fuel, nuclear and hydro power generation. In Canada, provinces are required to achieve 15% of their energy consumption from wind by 2012 as provinces…...

Big Wind

...Individual Case Pilot Response: Big Wind 1. What type of research should URS do? Urs should use exploratory research to begin her new Big Wind project (Kotler & Keller, 2012, p.46). This type of research will allow her to define problems with using existing sources of energy and suggest a solution to the problem through the usage of her windmill system idea. She will be able to explain to her potential customer base the benefits associated with transitioning to her windmill system through the use of exploratory research. Once Urs has defined the problem and identified possible solutions she will be able to determine the best research plan, data collection techniques and all the other data needed. The outcome of the exploratory research will provide her with significant insight into the best way to present her idea. This initial research can be used to establish the why, how, when and any other secondary and primary data behind the adoption and implementation of her windmill system. 2. What different research methods should be required to assess the demand for farmers versus small business? Developing an alternative source of energy will benefit both farmers and small businesses because it would reduce energy costs. In order to communicate the impact of her Big Wind project, Urs needs to apply the most effective research approach to sell her idea to these target markets. By using a more qualitative approach, she can gather the data she needs from the farmers. ......

The Big Wind

...developed a radically new windmill in her garage that she hoped would reduce energy costs for farmers in regions where high winds were common. Based upon her estimates, two of these windmills, together with a storage battery system, would be capable of supplying the normal electrical energy requirements for an average farm. To date, Urs had received a patent for her "Big Wind" windmill system and had sought some advice of professional colleagues as to the best way to market, make, distribute, and service the windmills for potential customers. Urs calculated that at a selling price of $16,000, she could net $4,000 per sale after paying for materials and labour for two windmills, a storage battery system, transportation and installation that would be required for each windmill system sale. An average farmer could expect to save enough on his electricity charges to recover the cost of the equipment within eight years, according to Urs estimates. Based upon feedback she received attending a wind-energy conference, Urs believed her windmill could have long-term potential and be made even more efficient with further research and through the use of improved battery systems currently being developed by other companies. Maintenance for the complete system, over the eight-year payback period, including battery cell replacement, was estimated to cost about $1,500, which was about half the cost for comparable windmills used in Europe. Development of the windmills had already......

Summary of Animal Farm

...about their new principles, Animalism, based on Old Major’s dream. In the Battle of Cowshed, Mr. Jones and other of his associates tried to retake the farm, but resulting in a victory for the farm animals and driving Mr. Jones of his land again. Some time after the battle, Snowball proposes to build a windmill, but Napoleon disagrees. Tensions grow between the two leaders and eventually, drove Snowball out of Animal Farm with the dogs he had taken in earlier in the book. Napoleon then takes command of the farm and declares that only pigs will make the decisions, and decides to build a windmill. Now all the animals work hard to complete the windmill. Unfortunately, the animals discover one morning that their partially build windmill had been destroyed by a storm, Napoleon used Snowball as an scapegoat: declaring that he had destroyed the windmill. After, many animals are killed by Napoleon's dogs when they were claimed to have been working with Snowball or submitting to Napoleon's command. Many times, Squealer, made many speeches defending Napoleon in his actions, such as acting like a human. In another battle, Mr. Frederick and other farmers attack the farm and blow up the windmill with dynamite. One of the most hard-working of the animals, a horse named Boxer, received many wounds had mysteriously disappeared after the victory for the animals. It was said that Boxer had died in a hospital, when Napoleon actually sold him. Later, after many years, the pigs of Animal farm have......

Destruction of Birds by Windmills

...Research Paper: Destruction of Birds by Windmills Birds are likely to be affected and/or destroyed by windmills, this is a natural part of life. The basic cycle is, wind developments tend to be placed in upland areas with strong wind currents that have a lot of potential to generate energy. Birds use these currents as highways, so they are likely to come into contact with the windmills (aka turbines). Windmills pose one the highest risks in the world of killing birds. Research also indicates that wind developments can disrupt migration routes; while bird's foraging and nesting habitat are at risk of being lost when turbines are put up. Windmills don't affect all birds, but they do affect birds of prey, disproportionately. The main reason this occurs has to do with bird's genetics. For example, species like vultures have blind spots in their visual field. This means they cannot see objects directly in front of them (like wind turbines) when flying. Concerning amounts of bird deaths; large birds like hen harriers, eagles and vultures are slower to reproduce than other species, so their populations are more likely to have a small number of deaths. Unfortunately, there are specific locations in the world where windmills have caused a great number of fatalities amongst birds of prey. In the Almont pass in California, one study found that about 4,000 wind turbines killed 67 golden eagles and 1,127 birds of prey in a year. In Southern Spain, 252 wind turbines located in an area......

Department of Energy

...The research purpose for The Department of Energy is to encourage the development of alternate energy sources to deal with the national energy problem. B. This research purpose is clearly defined in this case study. By conducting research about alternative energy sources this will help the department gain information on which alternative energy sources well help them in this crisis. This purpose is measurable because the information gained will help in their final decision of creating alternative energy programs. Research Objectives A. What the Department of Energy is hoping to accomplish is to gain background information on the use of windmills for energy power and with this they hope to create accurate, testable hypotheses. This is the main objective of this department because they are in charge of the alternate energy of the windmill. The objective is to get a better understanding on the past and future of how wind can be a supplier of energy. B. The three components of a research objective are research question, development of hypotheses and the third is the scope of the research. The research question for this objective is “what are the pros and cons of this source of energy”? The development of the hypotheses are not explained in the case study as there are no answers to the questions the department provided. The scope of the research objective does not seem to be restricted to any demographic besides people that have and have not used wind as a energy......

...Squealer to persuade the other farm animals that the pigs are doing nothing wrong. Jones returns and the animals win at the battle of Cowshed. Mollie leaves the farm due to her interest in sugar and ribbons and never comes back. Snowball draws up plans for a windmill and Napoleon denies them and runs Snowball off the farm forever with his pack of dogs. After Napoleon chases Snowball off, he says the windmill was his idea after all and uses Snowball as a scapegoat for all the farms troubles. The next year, Boxer proves to be the most useful animal as he practically leads the construction of the windmill. Napoleon also breaks another rule by trading timber with the other farms in county. After a while Napoleon becomes a totalitarian dictator, doing forced confessions of innocent animals and murdering them in public. He also begins to live in Mr. Jones house with the pigs and squealer of course justifies this action. The other animals are given less food and the pigs get more. After windmill is completed, Napoleon sells timber to Fredrick and then Fredrick and his men attack and blow up the windmill but are ultimately defeated. And as more rules are broken by the pigs, the rules change to favor them. Boxer offers to build a new windmill but then collapses and napoleon sells him to a glue-boiler, squealer thus tells the others that he died a peaceful death and are not to worry. The animal farms expands, the common animals are living under harsh conditions and the pigs have begun......

Eco 561 Week 2

...goes way back, they have been using windmills for water and farm use for many years. Based on comparative advantage I would suggest that the Netherlands specialize in the flower industry, cheese and fish industry, and the windmill industry. I made these suggestions because they are known for their flowers. During certain times of the year they have fields of tulips and is a mass producer of bulbs. This will give them the advantage over other countries because there are pictures of the tulip fields and almost all consumers know of their flowers. My suggestion for the flower industry is already in use because they have been specializing in that for awhile. Next I suggested the cheese and fish industry. I suggest this because they are known for their cheese. If you google “dutch cheese” you will get information about their cheese market called “Alkmaar Cheese Market” which is a huge cheese market where people can bid on the cheese of their choice. Fish are also prominent in the Netherlands as they are right by the sea. If you ever get the chance to go to the Netherlands you will be amazed at all the fish carts that are around selling fresh fish. The article I read earlier stated that they already specialize in the food industry but did not specifically state what type of food. I would assume that cheese is part of it but I am unsure if fish is considered in that information. Lastly I stated that I would suggest they specialize in the windmill industry. The reason behind this......

Animal Farm Sumary

...by Napoleon. Snowball’s most ambitious plan is for the construction of a windmill, which he says can provide heat and electricity to the farm. He accepts that it will be a huge undertaking, and is vague about some of the details. Napoleon is completely against the idea, and makes his opposition clear. Snowball continues to work on his plans, and spends hours every day in a shed working on them, drawing them out on the wooden floor. All of the animals visit Snowball regularly in the shed to watch the plans grow into something that looks very complex and impressive. Only Napoleon holds back, and when he does come to inspect the plans, he urinates on them. The day comes when all the animals will gather in the big barn to vote on whether or not the windmill will be built. The farm is divided into two factions at this stage, the “Vote for Snowball and the three-day week” faction, and the “Vote for Napoleon and the full manger” faction. Snowball has convinced his faction that the windmill will lead to increased leisure time for everybody, while Napoleon has convinced his faction that the distraction of the windmill will cause the animals to lose time on the harvest and starve.  The meeting begins. The sheep heckle Snowball as he explains his plans for the windmill, and why it will be good for the farm. Napoleon then rises and gives a very brief and curt address, advising everyone to vote against the windmill. Snowball then speaks again. He talks passionately and eloquently, and......

Power by the Wind

...with the wind has been a long one with the use of sailing ships and windmills. For centuries past the wind was used as the main power source for sailing ships. The use of windmills seems to have started with the Persians for grinding grain (between 500 and 900 A.D.). Windmills started appearing in Europe around the time of the Crusades (1096 -1270). The European design is very different from the Persian one Power by the Wind 2 and there is an ongoing debate whether the Europeans developed the windmill themselves or the Crusaders had taken the idea back to Europe. The earliest windmills found in Europe were a post mill construction. The main structure of the windmill sits on top of a post and could be rotated to face the wind. Human power was needed to rotate the windmill to face the direction of the prevailing winds. The windmill was turned by a long beam that was attached horizontally to the body of the mill. The mills sat upon a tripod structure that consisted of two crossed beams resting on the ground with four angled beams coming up to support the post in the center. These windmills used a horizontal axis allowing the sails of the windmill to take better advantage of the wind. The power was then transferred to machines by cogs and gears. In 1650 smock mills were developed with just the top part of the windmill being turned to face the wind. This was a huge improvement to the windmill because the sail structure was much lighter and easier to turn.......
