Wednesday Piece: Evolve

Did everyone make it through the storm okay?  Of course we did; how?  Because we had to!  Easy answer there.  It sucks now since we’re dealing with five big storms’ worth of snow all at once but, I suppose we will manage…because we have to. 326 more words


More on High-Altitude Wind

I’ve been in touch with the fellow in Italy I mentioned earlier on my piece about high-altitude wind power, in which I expressed concern that the levelized cost of energy for his concept (KiteGen) wouldn’t be competitive with other energy resources.  211 more words

Take a COOL Guess – the Fun Quiz on Clean Energy.  Today’s Topic: Efficiency in Wind Turbines

Question:  In physics, the Betz Limit is the top theoretic percentage of kinetic energy that can be extracted from a moving fluid, e.g., wind.  It’s based on the fact that, if you took it all, i.e., stopped the wind dead, the oncoming wind behind it would run into what you had just stopped.  96 more words

We don’t hear as much about high-altitude wind as we did a few years ago, though the subject has not completely disappeared.  There is no doubt that the wind resources a thousand feet or so above the Earth’s surface are far superior to those we experience down here, and this can be quite attractive given that the power generated by a moving fluid is proportional to the cube of its velocity.  343 more words
