$4,500 WindTronics Ultra-Efficient Low Speed Wind Turbine Available This Fall

Using big things to create electricity is generally good - but not always. Big things tend to be inefficient, hard to handle and to install. Wind turbines are just the case of this example - if they are too big, they are too noisy and insensitive to slow winds - that leads to inefficiency in all related aspects.

Distance Between Wind Turbines Should Be Doubled, Researchers Say

Wind farms are currently a big hope of the alternative energy industry, but today, just like in the early days of existence, most of them face the issue of being underperforming. Charles Meneveau, a John Hopkins fluid mechanics and turbulence expert, and his colleague Johan Meyers, from Belgium, have devised a wind turbine arrangement that could enhance their efficiency.

New Wind Turbine Generator Gets 57% More Power

Wind power is one of the cheapest forms of energy available to us, because it mainly depends on wind's speed, and it works 24/7, with no dependence on the moment of the day. A new company called ExRo Technology, based in Vancouver, BC, wants to commercially develop a new type of generator to be used in wind turbines all over the world. The interesting fact is that this new generator can increase the electricity output by 50%.
