Kinetic energy from wind is always changing in direction everywhere every millisecond of the day.
Why use wind power?
Wind provides a valuable source of renewable energy. Natural wind reliability however depends on a constant windspeed for wind turbines. Active Kinetic generators can harvest almost any wind hence even vehicle wind becomes a viable renewable energy source.
Vehicle Wind prototype
The Terrific prototype is the first wind technology proved to work for harvesting Vehicle wind energy.
The technology also proved to work in harvesting energy from natural winds.
Kinetic energy in Wind
Wind is a dynamic and constantly changing phenomenon that could be influenced by a variety of factors, including the temperature, pressure, humidity of the atmosphere, the surrounding terrain and topography of the local area. Additionally the presence of weather systems such as fronts, storms, and high-pressure systems can drastically alter wind speed, and ultimately the energy it provides.
Active Kinetic 1 has evolved a technology that deals very well with harvesting energy from a complex wave of force such as wind.
What are the key benefits over wind turbine farms?
The technology does not spin at high speed, so it is safer. The fact it is safer means it can be installed in a wider variety of places. The method to harvest energy is more efficient and less friction means less wind resistance less energy loss and operating at extremely low wind-speeds.
Why are there not more wind turbine farms?
Wind turbines have various issues that are extremely challenging and not easy to avoid. The two main challenges are constant windspeed and the other is safety.
Cost of Wind turbines: In the United Kingdom Wind turbine technology is still more expensive than fossil fuels, although the cost of the technology is decreasing and improving. Building and maintaining wind turbine farms in the UK is currently more expensive than other forms of energy production. Wind farms are expensive to install and operate, meaning the UK needs large subsidies and taxes to make them viable.
Wind turbines Location: Wind farms are limited by environmental restrictions, such as noise regulations and bird-strike regulations that reduce their efficiency. Wind turbines generate low frequency noise that can be disruptive residents living in close proximity to wind farms. Additionally noise disturbs local wildlife, hence an installation can mean the destruction of wildlife habitats.
Reliability of a Wind turbine: Wind turbines only produce electricity when the wind is above 9 mph and below 55mph, meaning their output is not very reliable. Often they need to be supplemented with other forms of electricity supply to make them start rotating.
Visual impact of a Wind turbine: Some people object to the appearance of wind turbines, arguing that they are visually intrusive and can have a negative impact on the landscape.
Wind Energy storage: Storing excess wind energy is a challenge and additional expense for wind energy. It generally requires expensive batteries and safety overload equipment. This energy can be useful for when the wind is not blowing.
Powering a Wind turbine: Wind Turbine technology often uses additional energy to start up. It generally requires grid electricity or expensive battery equipment to power up the turbine before it can produce any energy in return creating an energy security weakness.
