Vertical-Axis Wind Turbines For Offshore Use by Sandia Laboratory

Vertical-Axis Wind Turbines For Offshore Use by Sandia Laboratory

What turbine works best offshore? Is it the horizontal? or the vertical-axis mechanism? That is the question that is being re-evaluated by Sandia National Laboratoriesā€™ wind energy research. Sandia Laboratory is re-examining vertical axis wind turbines (VAWT) who they think can solve the problems that horizontal axis wind turbines (HAWT)  Read more »

Portable, Airborne Wind Turbine

Portable, Airborne Wind Turbine

Harnessing the power of high altitude winds has been continually explored over the years. Recently, testing of a 35-foot wide prototypeĀ  Airborne Wind Turbine (AWT) has been completed by Altaeros Energies. The AWT was deployed at 350 feet high and produced twice as much power at high altitude than generated  Read more »
