The Shaky Board is a new type of wind turbine that can be used to generate energy in a clean and economic way. The design has been awarded a UK Patent and a Utility Model in Denmark.
The idea is simple-enough, but I don't see it in the real world. For me, it is an old idea, but when I thought about it, I decided to try to exploit the idea rather than simply ignore it. Climate change is advancing rapidly.
Shaky Board in the environment.
Turbulence can be generated and enhanced with external poles.
A magnet oscillates in a coil to generate electric power.
The turbine can work in a more turbulent and high energy environment, where the wind may be constantly active and the device constantly running. The opportunity is the fact that this environment is not being exploited by the current turbines, which cannot work under those conditions and so any energy production would be a 100% gain. While the patent is accepted as a onshore device, it could run offshore as well and benefit from wave motion by being hosted on floats.
The invention still needs to be fully developed and tested. So a program of development and commercialisation is required. An outright sale is also on offer.
The Shaky Board is a new type of wind turbine that works in a fundamentally different way.
It prefers turbulent conditions, which can also be artificially created, to a steady flow.
It generates electricity through oscillation, not the rotation of a traditional turbine.
It can be used in almost any environment with constant wind or water energy.
