  • A new algorithm improves the efficiency of small wind turbines

    In recent years, mini wind energy has been developing in a spectacular way. According to estimates by the WWEA-World Wind Energy Association, the level of development of the mini wind energy industry is not the same as that of the wind energy industry, although forecasts are optimistic. The main reason is that the level of efficiency of small wind turbines is low. To address this problem, the ...

  • Wind turbines may lure bats into fatal errors

    Scientists in the US might just be about to answer one of the great puzzles of biodiversity and renewable energy: why one of nature’s most agile flyers, a creature with the most sophisticated ultrasonic tracking system, should be so fatally attracted to wind turbines. Blades on the giant towers of wind turbines can rotate faster than a bird can fly, and are known to cause huge numbers of ...
