These Tulip-Inspired Turbines Create Cleaner and Lovelier Wind Energy

Generating wind energy doesn’t have to be ugly! It can be beautiful and resemble nature – a reflection from which it’s derived! That’s why the brilliant folks at Flower Turbines, based in New York and Rotterdam in The Netherlands, came up with the lovely two-bladed wind tulip turbines. They come in an array of vibrant colors and are aesthetically pleasing, cleaner, quieter, cheaper, and more efficient.

Also considered a form of “eco-art,” this beautification of wind technology has gained traction in Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Germany, Israel, India, and Colombia. Oftentimes, wind turbines are a massive distraction from the landscape and are truly an eyesore. Yet, these Flower Turbines are a breath of fresh air – quite literally!

These eco-friendly beauties don’t pose a threat to birds or other wildlife either, especially in urban settings. Plus, they are so quiet that any minor noise they may create is at such a low frequency that it’s undetectable to humans. The Flower turbines have horizontal ribs that don’t just hold the segments together, but they reduce the turbulence and increase efficiency.

Another key feature of the Flower Turbines is its impressive cluster effect. Typically, wind turbines must be widely spread apart to avoid interference. Flower Turbines, on the other hand, when spaced correctly, produce 20-50% more electricity than when standing alone. This sparks new business models, such as the rooftop wind farm – with more sales per roof, as well as a mass-production manufacturing model, the company points out.

There are three models of Flower Turbines. The small Flower Turbine is ideal for off-grid installations with low energy requirements. This includes ground or roof installations. The medium Flower Turbine can be used for ground or roof projects, provided the roof is flat and engineer-approved. It also has a cut-in speed of 0.7 m/s (1.6 mph), whereas most other vertical-axis turbines start at 3 m/s (6.7 mph). The large Flower Turbine is primarily used for on-grid applications and only for installations on the ground.
