Return Of The Vertical Axis Wind Turbine: The Force Awakens

October 26th, 2017 | by Tina Casey

Wind Power Engineering tapped the WIND e-20 as “Wind Turbine of the Month” in its October issue. Aside from the technical specs, reporter Paul Dvorak teased out some juicy details, leading off with the observation, “this turbine design and its developer break all the rules -- in a good way.”


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


Offshore Vertical Axis Wind Turbines

March 25th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

The Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) has found that while traditional offshore wind turbines using a horizontal axis design are a good energy source in many locations now, vertical axis offshore turbines may be even better


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
