    Using Typhoon Winds In Japan

    This New Wind Turbine Could Power Japan for 50 Years After One Typhoon; The technology marks a big step toward energy independence for Japan, which currently imports 84 percent of its power

    Nick Mafi, October 4, 2016 (Architectural Digest)

    “ …[A] Japanese engineer has plans to harness a typhoon’s [devastating and destructive wind speeds of between 98 and 120 m.p.h. and use them] to power the nation…[The world’s first typhoon-powered wind turbine is] a roughly 18-foot structure that, with its three distinct prongs, somewhat resembles an egg beater…[Because] a mature typhoon can produce a level of kinetic energy equivalent to about half of the world’s electrical generating capacity, this turbine could use a typhoon’s wind to] power Japan for up to 50 years. Add in the frequency of the country’s typhoons—anywhere from three to seven each year—and the potential for massive quantities of renewable energy is unmistakable…The technology [was designed to suit fit the extreme demands of Japan’s climate. It] works by allowing the wind to rotate the blades at rapid speeds without losing control of the turbine…[Japanese authorities are waiting to see how the] technology works when the next typhoon inevitably strikes…” click here for more
