Global Air DynamicsDeveloping a compact, cost effective vertical axis wind turbine
Energy: Global Air Dynamics intend to make a contribution to the UK’s stated climate change target to reduce greenhouse house gases emission by 34% by 2020 by addressing and exploiting renewable energy generation.
Developing a compact, efficient, visually acceptable wind turbine that can be used in the domestic and commercial environments but will also be scalable and capable of being incorporated into larger structures for use in wind farms.
Global Air Dynamics Ltd received £50,000 from the Test Bed fund to help develop new wind turbine technology.
Global Air Dynamics is using the grant to develop and demonstrate the prototype for use in-house to test the efficiency of the turbine and generally collect data on the mechanical and electrical aspects of the turbine.
The additional data and information gained from the Test-bedding will allow the development of the product that will be better suited for the targeted markets and enable bringing the product to market considerably earlier thereby improving the chances of success.
