New Shape-Shifting Personal Wind Turbine


Ben Storan just won first prize in BSI's 2007 Sustainability awards for his design for a shape-shifting, vertical axis personal wind turbine.

The device works very much like the Quiet Revolution wind turbines. The design is we recommend soft levitra less efficient than Quiet Revolution turbines, but much more efficient than other turbines marketed toward homeowners. Plus, this new way of building turbines has other advantages as well.

First, the simplicity of Storan's design will bring down the costs significantly from other similar personal turbines. Though, were still looking at a fairly expensive energy appliance.

Second, Storan's turbine can change shape, much like an umbrella, so that it produces the robert-alonso-photos.com maximum amount of electricity at a wide range of wind speeds and rx cialis can also be folded up, much like an umbrella, during extremely strong winds. Other turbines have to be locked in place, or even taken down during severe storms.

Beyond Ben's £3,000 award, we can hope that he'll begin marketing and selling the design for big bucks in the near future.

Science of warming.
written by K-wrap Buster, July 02, 2007
"Global warming," latest scare-tactic. Natural weather variations with a normal warming cycle, then cooling down after a few more years. So says the American Indian next door. His great-grandmother saw the glacier ice recede from the Idaho panhandle in about 1810. That ice melted way before "industrialization" took effect.

Why is our culture in love with the idea of scary thoughts like global warming? Could it be an ego-centric mental malady that boasts that we humans could actually change the viagra 100mg price thermal mass of the entire earth? Call it ego-mania, but do we choice viagra india not call "global warming" science.

I can't find out data to back up this guy's claims. He doesn't seem to have a website or published his findings. I find this strange considering he has won an award. If this design really is as good as he says then he'll be very wealthy in the near future as current urban wind turbines simply don't make financial sense
