Energy Innovators

Wind energy just got even more exciting, thanks to David Yanez, co-founder of a company called Vortex Bladeless. He’s begun a revolution within a revolution with an amazing new approach to harnessing the power of the wind. By capturing the power in vortices of air through oscillation, these blade-less generators are capable of producing wind energy without the concern about excessive noise and/or danger to wildlife. Not only that, they are exceedingly more cost effective to produce and maintain. This article has some great photos of the prototypes, and here is a video featuring some of the minds behind the project explaining both their motivation for the innovative technology, but also the mechanics and economic advantages.
