What’s Next: Low cost wind turbines for the developing world

As we know itIn the present era, the renewable energy realm has a share of about 19 percent in worldwide electricity generation. Now, for the uninitiated, this may seem to be a paltry figure, but if we go by statistical expansion, the ongoing phase is cer

Best of 2011: Advances in wind power technology

When we talk about renewable energy sources, wind power is considered the most effective resource. There have been so many technological advances in the utilization of wind power resulting in a clean, renewable, cost-effective means of generating electric

Voleo: The perfect wind turbine for domestic use

Wind energy, when harnessed properly, can be used to accomplish a variety of daily tasks. Accordingly, the engineers at the Ecole Centrale de Lille for Osue Studio have created the Voleo Wind Turbine. Voleo has an interesting and high efficiency design th

Unmanned Aerial Vehicle: An aero vehicle propelled by wind power

The basic concept of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is based upon the power of sun and wind to propel. The shape of the current aircraft resembles the shape of a bird. The UAV is based on the mechanism like birds, which use wind power to fly. As birds util

What’s Next: Floating wind turbines

As we know it Our dependence on fossil fuels and other non-renewable forms of energy has reached a saturation point. With the earth no longer capable of churning out the required amounts of conventional fuel forms to meet our growing energy demands, r

Future Perfect: Noise-free and highly efficient wind turbines

What’s happening right now A father and daughter team, Alfred Mathieu and Sharolyn Vettese, has designed a special high-efficiency, noise-free and compact wind turbine known as the Windancer for a Canadian company called Wind Simplicity. The design h

What’s next : Micro wind turbines

As we know itWind energy and solar photovoltaics are the currently proven clean energy sources. Though contributing only a small 6 per cent of global energy production and with problems of intermittent energy generation, these technologies continue to adv

5 Countries generating the most wind energy

Wind energy is one of the renewable and green energy source. It is one of the ways to tackle the energy shortage. About 194,400 MW of energy is produced by the windmills throughout the world. Most of the European countries are utilizing the wind energy th
