VETAR wind turbine is new generation HAWT wind turbine - small but powerful which can be used almost anywhere.
We propose build of VETAR 15 wind turbine for urban application in some of Serbian cities (but can be done alternatively anywhere in the world) as technology demonstrator for small (3.6 meter highest diameter) but very powerful (15 kW) wind turbine. Advantages of this technology relatively to conventional most commonly used tree bladed HAWTs are:
much smaller size relatively to same power output
lack of vibrations
do not kill or maimed birds and bats
much higher versatility of application (can be used safely in urban environments, on transport vehicles (ships or trucks as mobile reasonable meaningful renewable energy source, can be used on airports etc.)
reliability – due to two counter rotating rotors attached on two independent electro generators.
As such this kind of turbine can be used very successfully in urban environments without any negative footprint commonly related with conventional wind turbine of same power output (size, noise, vibrations, and safety). As such this new generation will give completely new meaning to sustainable, green smart cities.
