Fully Charged Dives Deep Into Wind Turbines At Britwind

December 21st, 2016 | by Kyle Field

We regularly highlight one of our favorite cleantech shows — Fully Charged — here on CleanTechnica and we have another episode for you today. What I love about this episode (and most of the Fully Charged series) is that Bobby Llewellyn (the host) has a unique ability to dive into a new complex topic and unpack it in a way that's easy to understand for someone who knows nothing about it (like me in the case of wind turbines)


Small Wind Turbine Market Sees Strong Growth (2010 Market Growth Report)

October 22nd, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

I published preliminary stats on the American Wind Energy Association's 2011 report on small wind turbine growth about a month ago. The official release of the study results is now out. Here's AWEA's news release on it (much more information and many graphs are included at the link on the bottom)


Win a Vespa!.. from a Home Wind Turbine Company

October 17th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

I've written about Sauer Energy a number of times over the years. About a year ago, the company released a new vertical-axis wind turbine with a unique design to improve the efficiency of this small-scale, clean power option. With energy prices continually rising (causing not only people's transportation and electricity bills to rise, but also the price of food and goods), more and more people are turning to clean energy options like this that use free fuel. It's just common sense


Small Wind Turbine Growth Projected to Keep Booming

October 4th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

I wrote a piece on the considerable growth of the small wind turbine market in recent years just about a week ago. That growth is projected to continue. By 2015, the installed capacity small wind turbine market is projected to go from 50MW to 152MW.


Small Wind Turbine Market Growing Strong in U.S.

September 25th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

The American Wind Energy Association is going to release a report on 2010 growth of the small wind turbine market soon, the AWEA 2010 U.S. Small Wind Turbine Market Report. I got to take a sneak peak at some of the data and charts and, with permission, am sharing a few key points and a couple graphs with you here on CleanTechnica


Vertical-Axis Wind Turbines — An Option for You?

June 22nd, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

Wind power is growing fast, as anyone here on CleanTechnica should know by now. It is exploding as its costs fall and the high costs of other power sources (i.e. coal and nuclear) are made more apparent and rise. And, this is all expected to continue in the years to come because wind power technologies are quickly being developed and improved, their fuel (wind) is expected to remain free indefinitely, and the costs of coal and nuclear are expected to continue rising


New Vertical-Axis Wind Turbine Unveiled

September 17th, 2010 | by Zachary Shahan

Yeah, that doesn't look like your normal wind turbine, does it? But this new wind turbine by Sauer Energy is not 100% unique -- it features some great new innovations, but is built on an existing wind turbine design that seems to becoming a more and more popular, a vertical-axis wind turbine (VAWT) design
