Windenergy convertor EWICON

How does a “windmill” without mechanically moving parts work? TU Delft researchers Johan Smit and Dhiradj Djairam developed the EWICON (Electrostatic Windenergy CONvertor), a windenergy convertor that transforms windenergy into electricity without mechanical moving parts. This animation shows how it works and can be deployed.

Jet Engine Wind Turbine

The FloDesign Wind Turbine uses the knowledge and design of Jet Engines. It’s safer, cheaper, more efficient, smaller, needs less working space, …

It sounds like this is a better option compared to the models we know today. Strange that nobody came up with such a design yet..
