Mike Water’s wind turbine design can produce 12,000% MORE electricity compared to a standard 3 blade turbine of the same diameter. And, it can start generating electricity in less than 1 MPH. Check out this awesome looking transparent version created by one of the member’s of Energetic Forum!
There are many kinds of water generators and most slow down the flow of the water. One company, Lucid Energy has inline generators that can be used to create electricity from water leaving water towers and other similar situations without any significant reduction in the water pressure!
It’s no secret that on a large scale, wind energy is not a viable solution as the maintenance is too high amongst countless other problems. It’s actually so bad that it would fail if it weren’t for the government subsidies to keep it floating.
Wind energy on a small scale is much more sensible, but even so, it isn’t that efficient. There is something called the Betz Limit that states that no wind turbine can capture more than 59.3% of the kinetic energy of the wind, but so far wind turbines only capture 30-40% of the wind.
There is a new wind technology that is blowing everything else away and it is 2.3 TIMES more efficient than blade technology and at a 45% reduction in cost.
Welcome to the Saphonian – a bladeless wind generator that takes the energy from the wind and uses it to pump up hydraulic accumulators. Watch it in action – this video is in French but you can see the obvious mechanism:
