The portable wind turbine
The U.S. Army’ RDECOM (Research, Development and Engineering Command) has been testing a portable version of the wind turbine system, called “Power on Demand,” and so far they like what they are seeing.
The mobile wind turbine system was developed by the company in partnership with RDECOM engineers.
The turbine looks like an oversized bullhorn and is mounted on a trailer equipped with solar panels and an onboard energy storage system.
The WindTamer’s business angle is to provide individual companies with their own energy storage capabilities along with wind and solar power, so they can avoid drawing power from the grid during the more expensive peak use periods.
