Dragonfly Turbine

In partnership with ENEL Green Power, Italy, the award-winning Genoese architect Renzo Piano has begun testing a mini-wind-turbine blade. The blade uses bio-mimicry, adapting the features used by dragonflies in flight to help stabilize turbines in the event of gale-force…

Magnifying Wind

Yuji Ohya, an engineering professor from Japan’s Kyushu University, thinks that concentrating the power of the wind before harnessing it could greatly improve the wind’s energy output. Ohya’s revealed his ideas at a previous Yokohama Renewable Energy International Exhibition. In…

Downdraft Tower

The Solar Wind Downdraft Tower could revolutionize wind power technology and shift the way we think about wind power. Created by Maryland-based Solar Wind Energy Inc. it twists the traditional notion of wind turbine design. In this system, the turbines…

HERCULES OR ADONIS

Wind energy is probably the most environmentally-friendly energy sources, but some complain of how turbines look. Here is a new windmill that has been designed by Terry Glenn Phipps. He has combined with an Italian clean technology company to form…

SEATWIRL

For a wind turbine to achieve maximum efficiency, the power it generates must be immediately fed into an electricity grid (exactly as the wind is blowing and blades are spinning!). Some designs allow power to be stored in batteries for…

A New Spin on Drinking Water

The French company Eole has modified a wind turbine to generate ENERGY from wind and WATER intake of air creating up to 1000 litres of fresh, clean drinking water daily. The WMS1000 is designed to last for around 20 years…

Silver Skin

Altaeros Energies is developing air-borne wind turbines that generate, low cost, renewable energy using aerospace technology. Helium filled structures lift wind turbines to heights where winds are much stronger and effective. In doing so the floating turbines can receive more…
