US-based wind energy company SheerWind  just unveiled the INVELOX  – a tunnel-based wind turbine that can produce up to 600% more power than traditional wind turbines . The company states that after extensive field-testing, their new INVELOX turbine “significantly outperforms the traditional turbine” and could reduce installation capital costs to less than $750 per KW.
The INVELOX energy system  works by capturing ground-level breezes and funneling them through a tapering passageway that naturally accelerates wind flow. Unlike other turbines, it also minimizes environmental and animal impact, and it requires no government subsidies to be profitable. All of this makes INVELOX a potentially game-changing renewable energy solution that could be easily integrated within commercial renewable energy operations.
SheerWind  claims that the INVELOX turbine  can operate at wind speeds as low as 1 mile per hour, and it has generated a record high energy production capacity of 72%. In a statement, Dr. Daryoush Allaei , CEO of SheerWind said: “This exciting performance superiority over traditional wind and competitiveness with natural gas and hydroelectric generation is attracting significant interest from fortune 500 and moderately sized companies; government entities; industry experts; and others.”
“Our ability to operate efficiently and effectively in areas never considered viable with traditional wind energy and at costs as low as $10 MWH makes SheerWind a true game-changer in electric power generation.” Watch the below video to see how the INVELOX turbine works.
