Wind turbines - recent developments

  1. Jul 12, 2008 #1

    I have been trying to find recent developments for wind turbines (post 2000) but so far haven't been successful.

    Does anyone have any ideas as to any recent developments that have occured (even if you arn't sure, just some ideas that I could research)?

    wow, thank you. Thats crazy translating the flipper of a whale into the blade of a turbine. I love how you can never seem to stop learning from nature.

    I can't say to much for the obvious reasons, but like some articles that are on the net about these things say, they will be controlled.
