A Solar Powered Wind Turbine Produces Eco-friendly Energy In An Eco-friendly Way

We have heard a lot about wind turbines and solar panels. However, I am sure enough that keeping them work together in one is something new and extremely lovely to hear. Scientists from University of Liverpool lead by Dr. Joe King have come up with an ultra sustainable windmill. Yes! A windmill is sustainable enough but having solar panel blades is more than enough. This upgraded windmill will surely allow residents of the United Kingdom to enjoy energy without the guilt feeling of harming the environment. In addition, they surely will enjoy the savings they got in their energy usage.

Aerogenerator X: An Offshore Wind Turbine

Wind turbines are known to eat huge spaces making it not ideal to be built in residential areas. However, this type of energy source is just another way of taking advantage of our sustainable source of energy, which is the wind. To make use of the natural resources we have while keeping the neighborhood safe, the Aerogenerator X design by London Architects Grimshaw in collaboration with engineers Arup was unveiled. This offshore wind turbine is designed for a British company Wind Power and has the ability to produce twice the amount of power produced by the company’s current design. In addition, it also weighs half the weight of the current company design.

The Strata: A Skyscraper With Built-in Wind Turbines

Green architecture continues to get innovative and the Strata as the first skyscraper to have a built-in wind turbine is just one of the proofs that architects are dedicated enough in helping save the environment. The Strata is a latest addition to the London’s skyline and strikes many eyes with its three built-in wind turbine that produces 8% of the structure’s energy needs. All of the three wind turbines are incorporated on the Strata’s façade and is made possible via a tricky engineering by the Brookfield Europe. The 148-meters long tower has 42 stories and is designed to make use f the Venturi effect produces by nearby structures in order to force wind through the turbines. The wind turbines are expected to produce 50MWh of electricity per year.

M.A.R.S. : Wind Turbine From Magenn Power

I am obviously excited to avail of this wind turbine from Magenn Power. Obviously, this will save us from the high gas prices. However, I am doubtful if this is available for individual consumers like us. I have a feeling that this is available for corporation or groups. By they way, it is still a helpful step to save from gas. Maybe household owners will just form a group to avail this turbine and have it distributed in each household. I find it very helpful to individuals, I just wish that this turbine is allowed to be install here in our place.
