Bio-Inspired Vision of Wind Power

At the end of 2009 ,my daughter and I (Gary Howorth - the founder), wrote a paper on an alternative visison for wind Power in 2030 . It was based on some ideas we were developing on bioimimicry, and evolution. We decided to update the paper , include some economics and republish it. It seems to us that Wind Power in its current form has many obstacles to overcome, and that costs will need to be reduced substantially. This will be no mean feat. This paper presents a different view of offshore wind. One that departs from the standard blade technology that is essentially 5000 years old. It is not meant to be a definitive solution but explores some alternative ideas. Hopefully it will spark off some alternative thoughts on this subject. Enjoy!
