Invelox wind turbine, does it work?

Invelox wind turbine

In April, three generators will be placed in the narrowest part of the funnel: the place where the wind blows six times as hard, according to inventor Daryoush Allaei.

The Invelox wind turbine on the roof looks like a Vuvuzela, popular and hated at the World Cup in South Africa in 2010.

Michael Dubelaar hopes that it will be an alternative to the classical wind turbines. Recently, NedPowerSWH has installed a prototype.  Read More

Kite Power reality by Roosegaarde

Kite Power reality by Roosegaarde

During reel-out, the kite is flying figure-eight maneuvers at high speed (70 to 90 km/h). This creates a high traction force (3.1 kN at 7 m/s wind speed) which is converted into electricity by the drum and the connected 20 kW generator.

Kite Power by harnessing high altitude wind next step in Dutch Icon project ‘Afsluitdijk’. 

Even NASA has started to work on airborne wind energy. This field is very new and has much room for innovation.

Flight testing with actual consistent measured power production is the next step.

That’s why art-innovator Daan Roosegaarde is going to install and light the kites at the Afsluitdijk in the Netherlands. Read More

Wind Technology Edge

Wind Power, new energy, sustainable climate solutions

Extol winds is amongst the first to achieve the stringent GL-2010 guidelines for it 1 MW ‘Ex-55’ model.

With the Climate Summit in our agenda, it’s great to sea that so many companies worldwide are involved in new energy technology. This is such a great company: Extol Wind. Extol is a leading manufacturer of megawatt wind turbine. With proprietary technology and integrated manufacturing, Extol is fast emerging as global company.

Windmills on the sky building generate 15% less energy

the wind yield could have been up to 15%

Wind turbines set wrong. The wind yield could have been up to 15%

The Bahrain World Trade Center was the first Tower with integrated wind turbines in the world.

Now it appears that the designers have not thought carefully about the orientation. 

If the turbines had been placed exactly opposite, the yield of the turbines had been nearly 15 % higher, concludes Professor Bert Blocken TU Eindhoven.

In theory you should be able to generate up to 31% annually more energy with the rearward placement of the turbines calculated Blocken.
