Small, vertical turbines may be answer to cheaper wind energy

04/8/2013 | MIT Technology Review online

Small, vertical-axis wind turbines -- arranged on a given landscape according to computer modeling that allows each turbine to maximize the power of others near it -- may hold the potential to lower wind power costs. The concept from Caltech aeronautical and bioengineering professor John Dabiri has been demonstrated on a test plot in California and next faces a trial at an Alaskan village of 50 residents.
