Gale generators – Part 3 - Tree – the most sustainable wind harvester - first posted on Energy Central old blog on 28.08.11
The life of tree is based on circulation of gases, liquids and photosynthesis. The tree circulation itself needs of sun shining and wind.
In order to survive over the millions years of evolution the tree became the most successful and sustainable harvester of wind.
Let’s make a calculation on how much wind energy harvested the forestry at US east cost during hurricane Irene and how much harvested all there disposed wind generators.
What is the difference – millions of times?
Might the efficiency of tree in harvesting of wind energy to refer to new conception of sustainable wind generators?
Still stays the question do we spend or harvest wind energy with current generation of wind generators operating till 20 m/s wind velocity?
