Japanese engineers developed an incredibly rugged wind turbine which is capable of harnessing the immense powers of typhoons.
Atsushi Shimizu, an engineer of the project is developing a wind turbine which takes advantage of the Magnus effect to safely harness the power of the gale force winds produced in a typhoon.
Since 2011, Japan’s nuclear program has been shut down over the concerns surrounding the Fukushima meltdown. While the country was once predicted to generate 60% of its electrical demand through nuclear generators, the idea now rests as the majority of the reactors remain dormant.
