A New High Capacity Rotor

Luxturbine

Most wind turbines focus on maximising the efficiency with which power is extracted from the wind. By contrast, the focus at Lux Wind Power is on creating a wind turbine rotor that has a larger swept area in order to extract power at the lowest achievable cost. The large swept area rotor is expected to generate electricity at a much lower levelised cost of energy (LCOE) when compared to existing wind turbine technologies and Lux Wind Power is currently seeking financial support from the industry, investors and/or partners to bring this much-needed product to market.
