Five Weird-Ass Wind Turbines - Here are a few of the more radical designs for wind-capturing devices out there. The huge, the odd, and the ingenious. A look at the Directory:MagLev Wind Power Generator, the Aerogenerator, the Directory:Magenn, the Directory:FloDesign Wind Turbine, and a rotating tower. (EcoGeek Sept. 7, 2008)

Winds of Change: Man invents windmill to save diesel' - The man who brought this green innovation to Thadubhai and the masses in gujrat is Mahesh Patel, head of GIAN, an organisation that works to find practical applications of little known innovators across of the country of India. (Thanks Congress:Member:Adrian Akau) (IBN Live Aug. 9, 2008)

Clearing the Air: Wind Power and Reliability - Our studies and experiences show that wind energy integrates effectively and reliably into our power systems with regional market operations to mitigate the impact of wind variability. (Renewable Energy March 25, 2008)

70% Of Navarra's Power Comes From Wind, Solar - The region of Navarra, in Northeastern Spain, gets approximately 70% of its electricity from the wind and the sun. With 1,100 windmills, this tiny region is capable of generating more electricity from renewable sources than France or Poland. Navarra plans to reach 100% renewable energy generation by 2010. (TreeHugger Mar. 22, 2007)

Compressed air wind turbines - General Compression thinks it's found a way to make wind power available on-demand using turbines to compress air and store it underground. A pipeline network collects and stores compressed air and a power plant of expanders and generators produces electricity when needed. Wind farms could sell power during peak demand, making them grid compatible. (Inside Greentech Mar. 20, 2007)

Efficient Wind Tunnels: Could Be Big? - Green Energy Technologies has developed a wind tunnel product that captures wind and pulls it into the center where the turbine is, increasing the velocity of the wind by Bernoulli's Principle. The WindCube is the urban-friendly rooftop application and the WindMAX is the tower application for high power users, with a payback period of 3-7 years. (TreeHugger Mar. 16, 2007)

‘Windy City’ is testing rooftop turbine power - Aeroturbines, with double-helix rotors caged in cylinders instead of exposed blades, is intended to limit bird kills, ice buildup, roof-rattling vibrations and howling noise. (Gulf Times May 30)

Image:Hi-Q Mamikon Spinner 95x95.jpg

New Advanced Propeller / Rotor System - Hi-Q Products has been awarded a grant from the California Energy Commission to develop “cutting-edge? advanced wind rotor system. The Mamikon Spinner, based on single strip geometry, is stronger and more stable than 3 blade designs. Able to spin in the slightest breeze, it is designed for sites with a high percentage of low wind days. (Hi-Q Products March 23, 2005) See also Hi-Q Rotor (pdf file) at DOE

Breakthrough, low-cost wind turbine technology moves closer to commercialization - The Wind Turbine Company has been awarded a contract with the U.S. DOE NREL to continue prototype testing and development of the WTC 750 kilowatt wind turbine. "Our new wind turbine technology provides the potential to reduce wind electricity cost by approximately one-third," said Larry Miles. WTC's 750 turbine features 2 rotor blades, oriented on the downwind side of the tower. (The Wind Turbine Company July 6, 2006)
