Vortex Bladeless – future wind turbines for green electricity

Innovation is the core key of any concepts improvement even when is about green electricity. When talking about wind turbines the surprise has already appeared. A new kind of approaching in using the wind energy to produce green electricity was developed by a Spanish team. They choose to eliminate blades but being more inventive. Their […]

A team of engineers has harnessed a sophisticated weather model to optimize offshore wind plan

Using a sophisticated weather model, environmental engineers at Stanford have defined optimal placement of a grid of four wind farms off the U.S. East Coast. The model successfully balances production at times of peak demand and significantly reduces costly spikes and zero-power events.
