Nautilus Shell Wind Turbine
« on: June 03, 2014, 02:10:30 am »
This wind turbine will power your apartment without keeping you up at night   face


By Holly Richmond



nautilus-shaped-wind-turbine   

The nautilus shell took time off from fitness-namesake duty to inspire The Liam F1 Urban Wind Turbine, which we are renaming The Not-So-Little Turbine That Could. Dutch firm The Archimedes designed the swirl-shaped windmill to be way quieter and more efficient than others (plus, itís blue!). The firm says the turbine can generate 80 percent of the maximum possible energy yield, a big jump from the typical 25 to 50 percent. Hot damn.

PSFK thinks itíll be great for your apartment, but at five feet wide, it might not exactly fit on your Brooklyn fire escape. At least the noise wonít wake you up in the middle of the night, which is one of the big drawbacks of most residential wind turbines/randy apartment neighbors.

Here are the Liamís specs:

The Liam F1 generates an average of 1,500 kilowatt-hours of energy [per year] at a wind-speed of 5 m/s [16.4 ft/s], which resembles half of the power consumption of a common household.

If you feel like spending 8 minutes looking at wind turbines (bonus: set to the Pirates of the Caribbean theme song!), thereís also this:

So get out $5,450 in pennies ó the Liam goes on sale July 1!  ;)

Agelbert NOTE: Amory Lovins has been talking about this for years in pump technology. Now the wind people are finally getting in it.   ;D why is this a big deal? Because it flips Reynolds numbers and turbulent flow and laminar aerodynamics theories on their heads as to efficiency and power output.
The Fibonacci pattern of wind vanes completely blows away the competition in wind to power output from other types of wind generators.

This is the kind of doubling and tripling of efficiency type breakthrough that will make mincemeat of dirty fossil fuel internal combustion machine energy.     ;D

Faith,
if it has not works, is dead, being alone.
