    This new design could actualy rewrite the Betz’ law. Interesting.

  3. Offshore units could also utilize wave and tide action to production of additional electricity adding to the reliability and low unit cost!

    They might even be used as fish farms using the design above.

    This is surely a breakthrough approach….

    Common sense overload! Japan provides an excellent example to those who naively think that it’s a nuke future or it’s no future. Not that I think that nuke power should be entirely avoided – IF the forth gen reactors ever take shape, I think that it’s sensible to make use of them as a minor energy source. However, why go to such efforts to acquire non-renewable energy when we’re literally surrounded by free energy and low energy tech?

    There is a Massachusetts company working along these lines and a prototype is being tested.

    That’s amazing. Watched `age of stupid’ last night for the first time, was feeling pretty beaten up, thanks for making me feel a little better!


  7. I saw a youtube the other day, which I can not now find, showing a homemade wind power set up. What made it different was that instead of having just one rotor with blades on a tower, they attached a horizontal element to the top of the pole, and put SIX rotors along it. Output, they said, went up by six times!

    The youtube of the new design rotor turbine above shows a lot of output air leaving the device at high speed. Why not add another turbine behind it, and save on the tower expense?
