With wind energy, since larger turbines generate more power, it’s best to go big—or go home. That may be the reason that, since 1999, turbines have gotten 50% larger. Now researchers are designing a new turbine larger than the Empire State Building, with a projected 10-times increase in power versus today’s turbines.
This turbine will be a technological marvel with a flexible structure, added for improved protection against hurricane force winds. It will also be fitted with two special blades that are retractable in the event of a hurricane.
With last year showing strong growth for the wind industry, let’s take a look at four trends in the industry.
