The application of the turbines vs the product engineering of turbines
The following article is written to promote the innovative concept of building mounted integrated wind turbines (BUWT) on stadium rooftops. The article addresses the concept as a innovative way to utilise otherwise dormant space (stadia roofs) to generate renewable energy. Central to this proposition is the wind yield possibilities, turbine type and overcoming technical challenges associate with mounting turbines. Ultimately this article proposes that innovative applications, can succeed the product engineering of urban wind turbines to produce better business cases.
Factors which are as equally or more so important than the actual engineering of a given turbine for an urban wind turbine project are; Wind science, positioning of turbine, type of turbine used for specific positioning, type of building and its energy use, and a building’s shape of roof.
