It took years for the Norwegian company Statoil to design, build, and finally move the five towers. Each stands 500 feet above the water, with another 250 feet below. It’s an expensive project, made possible by the participation of Scotland’s government as part of the U.K.’s renewable energy goals. But the payoff could be big, too. A floating wind farm can operate in much deeper water than traditional wind farms. Since a great deal of the Earth’s available wind power is far out at sea, being able to locate far from shore opens up a valuableโ€”and cleanโ€”energy source.

    Everyone, please watch my little nature videos. There is no talking in them. Shhh!

  3. This is so cool. Twenty years ago I was a technical writer at Colorado's National Renewable Energy Laboratory, focusing on new energy projects that were still in the demonstration phase. But nothing I wrote about back then was as cool as this!
