Bringing the airflow from the top of the tower to ground level allows for greater power generation from units that are 50% shorter than traditional wind towers, and whose turbine blades are up to 84% smaller. Wind power plants face four primary limitations. Advances in residential turbines make them more affordable and easier to use than ever. First, they don't work when wind isn't blowing. So you aren't placing these things in windless or low-wind locations. The Skystream 3.7 has an improved design that allows it to perform at lower wind speeds. Its new wind turbine produces 600% more power than conventional wind turbines with a new design that uses funnels to channel wind to the ground. Meet SheerWind's INVELOX wind turbine. Presently wind turbines use a mechanical transmission to smooth out the speed at which energy is delivered to an internal generator. That technology would seem to pair well with a new gearbox design from ExRo that allows turbines to much more efficiently turn fluctuating air currents into stable electricity. The more random power generators that get plugged into the grid by legal mandates of NET METERING, the more difficult load management will be. We've already covered Catch the Wind's laser-based system for creating 3-D maps of wind direction and speed.
