How to use the force of a typhoon to generate wind power

In the Pacific Ocean, in 2016 alone, twenty typhoons have occurred. A unique atmospheric phenomenon like this, could supply energy to a country like Japan for nearly 50 years. Given this premise, the Japanese engineer Atsushi Shimizu has developed a wind power generator able to withstand the force of these storms. While a conventional wind turbine is designed to withstand currents of 25 metres per second, the device designed by Shimizu and his company Challenergy Inc can withstand winds of […]

Clean energy saves us money

According to an interview published recently in the newspaper El Mundo with the Professor of Civil Engineering and environmental issues at Stanford University, Mark Jacobson,the total cost of air pollution in Spain is approximately 92,000 million euros, or 7.7% of GDP”. This is about 1,825 euros per person. In the light of his math, it is obvious that the climate change is taking its toll. A toll which costs money and, what is worse, also costs our health. And, as […]
