VAWT turbines offer a number of significant advantages over the more common HAWT design
When it comes to large-scale applications, vertical axis wind turbines are traditionally considered less economically viable than horizontal axis wind turbines
Albuquerque-based Sandia National Laboratories is conducting comprehensive research into the viability of vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs) for offshore use. The design, previously considered impractical for large-scale applications, has the potential to transform offshore wind technology, making it a more economically viable energy source.
