Vortex Bladeless, a wind turbine without blades

1) Vortex Bladeless is a sustainability technology addressing Energy

2) The Future of Wind Turbines? No Blades

  • Vortex Bladeless uses vorticity – the wind pattern that caused the oscillation and destruction of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge – to convert wind into kinetic energy for electricity.
  • The Vortex is cheaper to manufacture and maintain than a traditional wind turbine. It’s also quieter and safer for birds.
  • While the Vortex produces 30% less energy than a propeller turbine, you can fit and operate twice as many Votex turbines within a designated space.

3) Stakeholders:

  • developing countries
  • countries looking to improve or expand pre-established wind energy projects
  • homeowners looking to convert to or supplement renewable energy use

4) First steps to deployment:

  1. Raise public & private capital
  2. Partner with development organizations seeking to provide energy in developing countries. Also partner with countries that have an established a wind energy economy.
  3. Train local people in the use and maintenance of the product.
