Offshore Use of Vertical-Axis Wind Turbines Gets Closer Look by Sandia Labs

August 2nd, 2012 | by Glenn Meyers

Do the best offshore wind turbines operate with a horizontal or vertical-axis mechanism? That question is being reexamined by Sandia National Laboratories’ wind energy researchers, who are now re-evaluating vertical-axis wind turbines (VAWTs) to help solve some of the problems of generating energy from offshore breezes using horizontal-axis wind turbines (HAWTs)
