Energy Ball [Wind turbine]

CATEGORY: design + findings + new technologies + research + sustainability + ⚐ EN

The Energy Ball designed and built by Home Energy, breaks from most wind turbine design by using a spherical structure. They say that by using such a design, significantly higher aerodynamic efficiency can be achieved (40% better efficiency), as compared to traditional designs…

Home Energy:”This beautiful and low-noise turbine is being characterized by the six curved rotor blades which are attached to the rotor hub with both ends.” The other products made available by Home Energy include solar panels for generating electricity, central heating systems heated with biomass, solar boilers for hot water as well as the unique Energy Ball.

This is an impressive looking machine.Very compact and smaller than conventional turbines which is a great advance in technology.Ideas such as this will hasten the use of wind power to gnerate more of our power needs.Jm.

that's right! I think wind turbines are the fastest evolving technologies in renewable energies and also the most adaptable and efficient… 'cause almost everyday we see a new proposal or design for diferent scales of use… it's encouraging

Fantastic machine, I would like to admire the person who came up with this idea, thanks for sharing it, you rock.
