In the EU alone, according to the European Commission, electricity demand is expected to increase by 51 % between 2000 and 2030, requiring investments in power generation in the order of around 625 billion euro (760 billion USD). About half of this expenditure is needed for the replacement of existing power plants.
World energy demand is expected to grow at a staggering rate in the next 30 years. The International Energy Agency (IEA) predicts that the world’s energy needs will be almost 60 % higher in 2030 than they are now. Two-thirds of this increase will arise in China, India and other rapidly developing economies, which will account for almost half the energy consumption by 2030.
Recently, Shanghai Aeolus Windpower Co., Ltd. (referred as "SAWT") has finished the R&D and sample manufacture of the new 1kw vertical axis wind turbine (referred as "VAWT"). Now the product has(1kw vertical axis wind turbine) officially started the mass production.
The type of the new 1kw wind turbine is P1000-AB, which is the third generation product. Compared with the first and second generation, the new 1kw wind turbine has the below improvements:
Wind power is produced by using wind generators to harness the kinetic energy of wind. It is gaining worldwide popularity as a large scale energy source, although it still only provides less than one percent of global energy consumption. The articles listed below explore wind power and its usage around the world.
Recently, Shanghai Aeolus Windpower Technology Co., Ltd. (SAWT) has successfully developed the 10kw vertical axis wind turbine——PK-10-AB with the producing power wind speed 4m/s to 25m/s. The product has used two key technologies: the aerodynamic over-speed control system and the electromagnetic auto-brake system.
Recently, with the open of Shanghai World Expo 2010, the tourists would find a vertically rotating wind turbine erected on the top of the Indian Pavilion. This wind turbine is the product of Shanghai Aeolus Windpower Technology Co., Ltd. （SAWT), a vertical-axis wind turbine (VAWT).
