Japan thinks BIG for this wind tower generator
posted May 17 2011 20:03.49 by Giorgos Lazaridis




This could be an alternative to nuclear power, it is cheap and clean. Japan-based ZENA Systems is working on developing a new type of wind energy generator. The project wants a huge tower to collect air from all directions and tunnel it down to the base where giant wind turbines will produce power:

Andrew Michler from Inhabitat writes:
Japan-based ZENA Systems is working on developing a new type of wind energy generator that will dwarf anything before it. The 50 meter-tall hexagonal building essentially acts as a huge scoop that compresses wind from all directions and then runs the rushing air through a series of ground-based generators. The ambitious project is the first of its kind, and it includes a desalination plant, on-site energy storage, and a visitors center. Details are sketchy on the viability of the design, but if it works out this wind concept could someday reach high into the sky to power our grid.
