Hello World’s Ashlee Vance paid a recent visit to Iceland’s capital city of Reykjavik to see the next part of the green energy story. He found a start-up called Icewind that is building a new type of funky wind turbine designed to perform well in low-wind conditions but also to slow itself down in high-winds, preventing it from catching on fire or ripping apart.

Excellent alternative for wind turbine in High wind in Iceland
Cristian Ambaek (3 дня назад)
How much power do they generate compared to a "normal" wind turbine?? Difference in cost? Operation? Maintenance? I want information!
Vanessa Smith (3 дня назад)
Do they make a whooomping noise like the present windmills do ?

Looks cool, but you failed to mention how much better it is compared to other energy production sources. And also not how much it can give in energy in said time. Where are your numbers? Without it, this video is meaningless. And you should also talk about plans on how to improve this bit of technology.

??Company called what??? Iceland? Icerink? You would think that a company as big as bloomberg would have contact information for the company? What passes for journalism today is just sad.

Back when wind powered energy devices first became the rage in the US I remember seeing hundreds of small wind "mill" designs and one of then was the same as this one. I remember thinking that it some how reminded me of an elongated ships propeller, though the ones I saw were not reinforced as heavy as these, perhaps because the wind where they were was not as severe. What really burned my butt was that local municipalities passed ordinances against small private wind turbine because they thought they were counter to the aesthetic beauty of their towns! We have such an ordinance in our town and the thick headed socialist types in office will not remove it.

The output of this type of windmill is much LOWER than regular 3 blade ones. Christ! Look at the graphs. Pathetic. Most windmills a waste of money. We have one in Vancouver that cost $15m to build and will produce about $200K in its WHOLE lifetime. Well done that man! Promote him!

Persians have been doing this a few thousands years ago. Now a beast like Trump , so ignorant of history is backing terrorist state of Saudi Arabia to destroy Iran.

Trump is very selfish, he is making the USA's oil cheap this way. Imagine how much money it would take to get the same amount of clean electrical energy.

Put thousands of these in Wyoming and you could probably power the whole US.

The power from thousands of these is probably tens of megawatts to a 100 MW, which is 10 % of a single nuclear or coal power plant.

What happens if very very strong wind hits them? do they need special controller to "stall" them? or they can run without an issue even on a hurricane?
Integza (1 месяц назад)
Oh, we are making a video about an energy solution? Let's not talk about efficiency, power, cost, applicability ...
đeri662 (25 дней назад)
@Yolou1024 You need to calculate the cost of enery produced with this and compare that to other electricity sources (LCOE - $/MWh). Power and efficiency are the two of the most important things in electricity production.
Akeruyri (27 дней назад)
Those are all talked about in the video Power and Efficiency don't matter her since the materials and way its built are so cheep. As it mentions these are much cheaper to produce than a conventional wind turbine. And for applicability these are being design to be put literately anywhere where there is wind. They can make them as big or as small as they want to fit whatever need.
Seth Maskovich (1 месяц назад)
why not use nuclear? it's safe
Sara Teubert (1 месяц назад)
Why don't they just make wind turbines have a system built in to resist high wind speeds? Like one of those old-timey centrifugal brake type things where if it starts going too fast, centrifugal force makes the arms spress out and slows it down. Don't know the proper way to describe it, but it's like the exact OPPOSITE of what happens when a ballerina spins and she pulls her arms in to spin faster. When the arms go out, spin slows down.
Jaizel Mhay Magnaye (1 месяц назад)
Gentlemen, if you don't mind what is the efficiency of this type of turbine?
đeri662 (25 дней назад)
Savonious turbine's efficiency is about 15 %, they also have low power. These are the main reasons why horizontal axis wind turbines are preferred.

When efficiency meets artistry
Ethan Lamoureux (1 месяц назад)
How efficient is a wind turbine design where half the turbine area is moving into the wind, counteracting the other half which is moving away from the wind? The only reason it works at all is because the back side of each blade is curved to slightly reduce its friction as it moves into the wind.
Ides of March (1 месяц назад)
I'm not an engineer, but wouldn't having more fans decrease the energy needed to move the rotor out of deadlock? Or would the total energy needed stay the same? My intuition tells me that by decreasing the energy needed at any particular time, the rotor would still spin faster. For example the shape of a turbine vent seems much better for this kind of wind turbine.

What they forget to tell us is wind turbines slow down the wind, and that causes the air to warm up, thus causing global warming. ;-P

Travis Halstead (2 месяца назад)
Like he said nothing new. I've produced one very similar myself and yes they do prevent over spin from high winds. When it reaches a certain RPM it creates a Vortex around it that blocks the wind in a way like a giant drum wood. The faster it spins the less likely it is able to spend because it becomes less aerodynamic efficient for rotation. At a certain point it literally just fights itself and becomes a cylinder. This is simply only my experience with these types of designs. To see this company grow would be excellent

Ron Garza (3 месяца назад)
Imagine anything not secured on a merry-go-round (tiovivo in Spanish). It will be flung outward. So while the one blade is catching the wind, it is causing air to move outward from above and below on the other 2 vanes. An area for improvement?

Millions were put into research of these turbines and they cannot produce more energy than the control eats up. The project was eventually put down, after years of financial and cognitive input. Contact me and I will direct you to the company, university and production chief, if you are interested.
Leif Johnson (3 месяца назад)
Would the Savonius vertical axis wind turbine be viable if it were made of plastic? You could make the turbines must cheaper by plastic injection molding instead of having to make a metal turbine, I think. Plus you could use recycled plastic for the turbine, couldn't you? . I am no expert but I would think that a plastic rotor could be made strong enough. Is there something I am missing?
Mert Garbonite (1 месяц назад)
Leif Johnson the electric motor, gearing/ transmission control electronics and grid inverter/ battery storage are the expensive bits, your right about plastic being strong enough but sunlight can degrade plastic and its outside constantly in the elements so it's a trade off
Harley Me (3 месяца назад)
old technology, but still a bad choice.. LENZ vawts are ultimately more effecient from the push/pull design of the actual airfoil. mine is about the same size as that one but it puts out 1kwh of power ( MOUNTED A FOOT OF THE GROUND)
Xeno Bardock (3 месяца назад)
What if you made a cheaper electrostatic version of this wind power? Where the spinning of fans will cause it to mechanically rub the carpet or similar material to pvc pipe rapidly and generate large amounts of static electricity. You then convert this static electricity to AC or DC power. The taller the pvc pipe the better. Attaching pvc pipe on terrace of a tall building or top of a mountain even better. Covering pvc pipe with copper coil on the inside even more better.

"One of Wind Power's Biggest Problems I thought that this videos would be about the slaughter of birds. I moved to the Columbia Hills (which flank the Columbia River in Washington State) in 2000. In 2000, anytime one looked at the sky one saw hawks and eagles circling; when driving down a country road paralleling the Columbia Hills, it seemed as if there was a raptor perched on every telephone poll. Then they built the wind farms. Now all the hawks and eagles are GONE, slaughtered by the wind turbines. WIND TURBINES ARE EVIL. Or, perhaps I should say, conventional wind turbines are evil. It looks like this design will prevent bird-kill. Perhaps it will replace conventional turbines, for efficiency reasons. DISMANTLE ALL CONVENTIONAL WIND TURBINES!!

Wind turbines currently in use are serious noise polluters, people can't stand to live near one. And they are infamous bird killers. There are people who's lives are ruined when those wind turbines are built near their homes, from the horrible noise, and they can't sell their homes and move: no one will buy them, because of the noise.

You have to be pretty stupid to think "most people don't even know what it is. They think it is a sculpture or something..." Fucking idiot. That or people in Iceland are retarded.

They should just put gears on the conventional turbines so that there is more resistance in faster wind. That the gears would just generate more power, while slowing down the turbine. A gliding transition like some Mitsubishis have.

NREL National Renewable Energy Labs (US) stopped all testing on VAWTs because of inefficiency, unreliability and high cost of maintenance. I live close to an NREL test site near Boulder, CO. There are many standard 3 blade designs that undergo testing. As a hobby, I did a lot of research into renewable energy, especially wind turbines. Despite looking cool, I discovered that the VAWTs were essentially worthless.
