Researchers at Syracuse University develop technology to increase wind turbine efficiency

Syracuse University researchers, Guannan Wang, Basman El Hadidi, Jakub Walczak, Mark Glauser, and Hiroshi Higuchi have developed technology to make better use of air that flows over the blades of wind turbines.  The technology, which is still in testing, has the potential to drastically increase the efficiency/ consistency of wind power while reducing noise.  Such technology could greatly improve the economic feasibility of wind power.

The researchers have partnered with our portfolio company, Impact-Technologies Group to form the "Clean Energy Collaborative", which will design/test prototypes using the technology.
