While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    GERMANY’S SKYWIND – LIKE LEGOS

    A Lego-style wind turbine to reduce emissions and bring wind energy to developing countries

    14 October 2015 (Deutsche Welle)

    “…Wind turbines are huge, requiring special transport and equipment for assembly. But a German engineer [Frank Richert] is working on a model made of modular parts, which he hopes will help renewable energy go truly global…[I]nstead of starting with steel components at least 30 meters (98 feet) long, the Lego-style tower - called SkyWind - is assembled out of ready-made concrete plates that are 10 meters long…The concrete tower plates are stacked together [and] small steel pillars can be incorporated…[I]nstead of three rotor blades - which is currently the standard…- the SkyWind project uses a two-blade rotor…[but] performance of the windmill is not hampered [and one blade rotor less reduces construction costs and maintenance costs]…A patented self-winding system replaces the [construction] crane…The engineer believes that his technology is particularly well-suited for conditions in developing nations, where infrastructure is often weak and heavy machinery is scarce…” click here for more
