Another Interesting Wind Turbine

At this site you can see images of a vertical turbine design, by TMA Global Wind Energy Systems. You can even see a Flash Video of the turbine in operation. They claim that their design results in no bird kills, as opposed to propeller designs that will certainly kill birds that try to fly through the spinning blades.

Wind energy in North America is certainly taking off, according to this site. For Canada alone:

* Between 2004 and 2006 provinces in Canada will have collectively issued RFPs for 6,000 megawatts of renewable energy, with a lion's share of that rewarded to wind projects in Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba and New Brunswick.

* Canada, which had only 450 megawatts of installed wind capacity in 2004, is expected to see that base rise quickly to more than 6,200 megawatts by 2010.
