THE NEW WIND TURBINE THAT CAN POWER JAPAN FOR 50 YEARS AFTER ONE TYPHOON

Shimizu has invented the world's first typhoon turbine. A robust, egg beater-shaped wind turbine, designed not only to withstand the incredible force of a tropical cyclone, but also to harness it. It would be an understatement to say that typhoons aren’t typically associated with something positive. In the natural world, they cause mass destruction, wiping out entire communities and leaving many bodies in their wake. “Typhoons are normally nothing but a disaster,” noted Atsushi Shimizu, the inventor of the world’s first typhoon turbine. Shimizu’s highly durable eggbeater-shaped device was constructed to counteract Japan’s energy shortage, which has been an issue since the Fukushima disaster back in 2011. Shimizu, the founder of green tech firm Challenergy, says Japan could be “a superpower of wind.” Unique turbine technology in Iceland helps move energy. Windtrap - a new wind turbine.

Silent rooftop wind turbines could generate half of a household's energy needs

Small wind turbines scaled to the right size for residential and urban areas have so far lived in the shadows of their larger wind-farm-sized counterparts. The power output has been too low for a reasonable return on investment through energy savings and the noise they produce is louder than most homeowners can deal with. A Dutch renewable energy start-up called The Archimedes is working to solve both of those problems in a new class of small-scale wind turbine -- one that is almost silent and is far more efficient at converting wind into energy. The company states that the Liam F1 turbine could generate 1,500 kWh of energy per year at wind speeds of 5m/s, enough to cover half of an average household's energy use. Clarian Power: SmartBox Plug-In Wind Power.

The SmartBox Wind Turbine is a 48-inch tall vertical-axis wind turbine (VAWT) that plugs directly into an existing electrical outlet and automatically generates power whenever the wind is blowing.

Clarian Power: SmartBox Plug-In Wind Power

The SmartBox Wind Turbine can be mounted directly to the side of a home, on a rooftop or wind tower, or even existing street lights. And, it can generate up to 40 kWh per month in moderate winds enough to light an average home using energy efficient light bulbs. Expected to cost under $800, the SmartBox Wind Turbine is a cost-effective option for homeowners and small business owners looking to harness wind power for the first time. Working in tandem with the existing power grid, Working in tandem with the existing power grid, the SmartBox Wind Turbine works to conserve energy by producing enough clean, renewable wind power to offset a portion of the power being consumed in your home. This wind turbine has no blades — and that’s why it’s better. What do you get if you take the blades off a wind turbine?

This wind turbine has no blades — and that’s why it’s better

A better wind turbine. That sounds like a joke, but that’s actually more or less the model of a new wind turbine prototype. Instead of blades that turn in the breeze, the turbine is just a hollow straw that sticks up 40 feet from the ground and vibrates like a guitar string when the wind thrums by. The Spanish engineers who founded Vortex Bladeless in 2010 said they were inspired by the Tacoma Narrows Bridge disaster (maybe not the best pitch for clean energy to a disaster-wary public, but I’ll leave that to their marketing department). Here’s how it actually works, from Wired: Instead of capturing energy via the circular motion of a propeller, the Vortex takes advantage of what’s known as vorticity, an aerodynamic effect that produces a pattern of spinning vortices.

Plus, the turbine has no gears or moving parts; theoretically maintenance could be much easier than a traditional bells-and-whistles spinning one. Urbolienne, a new open source windmill in the city. Urbolienne, the first urban open source micro wind turbine, could soon be the next big thing in domestic renewable energy.

Urbolienne, a new open source windmill in the city

After off­shore wind farms and pro­pellers on peaks, why not tur­bines on build­ing rooftops ? The urban wind­mill could finally score some points in the do­mes­tic re­new­able energy race. Ur­boli­enne, a mi­cro-wind­mill pro­to­type de­vel­oped by the French con­sult­ing firm Aeroseed, gen­er­ates energy on sites where the wind is ir­reg­u­lar and often changes di­rec­tion, which is the case in the city.

This in­no­va­tion could change every­thing. While solar energy has long since col­o­nized in­di­vid­ual houses, do­mes­tic wind­mills are often shunned because of their high cost, low ef­fi­ciency and ir­reg­u­lar energy output from random winds, which are all sys­tem­atic in urban zones. The project already has its fans, as Ur­boli­enne raised 8,216 € (sur­pass­ing their goal of 6,000 €) on crowd­fund­ing website Ulule in June 2014. Ur­boli­enne demo video :
