Wind is no doubt one of the most reliable sources of renewable energy. Conventional wind turbine designs, however, fail to get the most out of it at low wind speeds, and hence, they require some design-related modifications. Spanish industrial designer David Sarria Jiménez proposes an innovative wind turbine design that promises to be five times cheaper, faster, easier to install and fabricate than current models. The much smaller turbines, dubbed as GEDAYC Revolution, can utilize weak to very strong winds to generate energy.
The highly efficient wind turbine could rotate its wings at 6m/s wind speed with extreme ease. Flaunting blades and kites, the concept turbine is quite capable of generating 50% more power than the traditional propeller-based models.
