Arista Power's WindTamer wind turbine has been selected by the Ultralife Corporation to be the wind component for a 1 megawatt-hour energy storage system demonstration project at Ultralife's corporate campus in Newark, New York. The demonstration project is funded by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and will integrate lithium ion batteries, ultra capacitors, wind and solar technologies. Ultralife's system is designed to provide energy utilities and renewable energy generators with an intelligent way to manage energy for consumption or storage.
The WindTamer uses diffuser augmented wind turbine technologies to maximize energy production while reducing the noise/vibration associated with the operation of traditional horizontal axis wind turbines.
