Now, Saphon Energy has designed a novel bladeless turbine. The Saphonian wind turbine moves in a ‘3D knot’ system to generate electricity — its solid convex surface works like a boat’s sail. With tests demonstrating an energy conversion rate of up to 80 percent, the turbine's power output is double the average of conventional bladed turbines. A bladeless system also circumvents many classic wind turbine drawbacks,…
