Remember those big fan-like wind turbines you passed the last time you drove by farmland on your way to your vacation destination? Those seemingly innovative green devices very well could become old-school in no time. It’s not that the wind is changing, and it’s not that the need for wind energy is changing. Whether we climb, float or soar our way to the top of the wind energy industry, it’s the way we capitalize on Brother Wind’s breezes that is changing soon – for the good.
Climbing our way to the peak of this green field is easy using the Joby airborne system, which looks like a horizontal ladder and features a whopping 12 turbines. Joby flies perpendicular to the direction of the wind in big circles. The advantage of this system is that it covers eight times the area covered by a traditional turbine. A megawatt model should be developed by the end of 2013.
Floating our way to the head of the wind energy sector also is seemingly easy with the Magenn, which is a system that is filled with helium and acts like a waterwheel when given enough wind. It generates electricity for immediate use or storage quickly. By late this year, a 100-kilowatt creation should be ready for selling.
Then, you have the Ampyx PowerPlane, which literally looks like a plane and zooms in figure-eight patterns – allowing us to soar high in the green energy market. A megawatt version should be in the air by 2013. Another plane-like wind energy system is the Makani, which has six rotors and should be ready for sale by 2015. By next year, a megawatt tester version is slated to be available. Lastly, the Sky WindPower flying generator, which has four rotors, will be available as a megawatt version by 2014.
Expect a revolution to take place among startups in the wind energy during the next couple of years. You can either choose to climb, float or soar your way to the head of the industry: Just don’t get left behind on your mother’s old windmill.
