Japanese Breakthrough in Wind Turbine Design

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 18, 2011) - This month, Energy Digital discusses the latest developments in global wind turbine technology with the researchers from Kyushu University, Japan.

Following one of the world's worst nuclear crises in Fukushima earlier this year, researchers at Kyushu University have been investing heavily in renewable energy solutions for Japan's future. One of those major developments is a revolutionary new wind turbine design that can triple the output of traditional models and compete with the cost of coal and nuclear energy.

Called the "wind lens," the team's new breakthrough in design improves efficiency and noise pollution lacking from traditional models. Several of the turbines are being installed and tested now and gaining huge expectations from abroad. When will the world see these turbines making a real impact on Japan's energy future and in other countries?

Check out the futuristic designs of both the land and offshore wind lens systems, soon to take the wind energy market by storm.
