Designing a Wind Turbine Optimized for Severe Weather

NewImage

Interesting read from fastcoexist.com:

Preventing damage will be critical as hurricanes are likely to get stronger because of climate change, and repairing enormous wind turbines—especially offshore—is expensive. But preventing damage while generating extra power is even better.

If all of the energy in a hurricane could be captured and stored, it would go a very long way to meeting human demand for energy. According to a NOAA estimate, the energy in a mature hurricane is equal to roughly half all of the electricity generation in the world. (Of course, the technology to store that much power doesn’t exist yet, but as batteries improve over time, more power from a storm could be put to use.)
