We are used to seeing in half mount large wind power generators with blades of several meters. In Israel, a group of researchers has developed a system of rotors for wind turbines from tissues, remain flexible, light and with a very low cost of manufacture. The idea has been one of five prizes of $ 100,000 granted by General Electric in the "ecomagination Challenge: Powering the Grid".I
Winflex is based on a large inflatable wheel maintains pressure through a central inflation system. The blades are anchored in the center of the rotor wheel, as if it were a boat.I
This innovative flexible impeller reduces both installation costs and the repayment of investment 3-4 years without subsidies.I
Its creator is the scientist Vladimir Kliatzkin, with over 40 years experience in energy production and storage systems for aircraft, hybrid systems and internal combustion engines.I
The idea has been awarded $ 100,000 by General Electric in the global initiative "Ecomagination Challenge: Powering the Grid".I
