Donut-Shaped Plastic Improves Turbine Output By 30% - Leviathan Energy has come up with a way to improve wind turbine efficiency that has nothing to do with the size or angle of the blades. The company's Wind Energizer is instead a donut-shaped structure made of plastic and steel that wraps around the base of the turbine to maximize wind velocity aimed at the blades.

Directory:WhalePower Corp - WhalePower Corp features a blade design that mimics the aerodynamically efficient design of a humpback whale’s flipper, allowing a turbine to capture more of the wind's energy, and at much lower speeds.
