Development of new technology to accomplish the decarbonized society ; Challenge for the mitigation and adaptation sector by the world’s first Magnus Vertica-Axis Wind Turbine that harness energy from typhoon
- Challenergy Inc.
To accomplish the decarbonized society, Challenergy Inc. will give a presentation about technical overview of the next generation wind turbine that they develop and possibility of contribution to the mitigation and adaptation sectors.
Recently, there are lots of issues about the conventional wind turbines although the wind energy market is developing globally and rapidly. Challenergy Inc. is conducting the technological development of their world’s first Magnus Vertical-Axis Wind Turbine that harness energy from typhoon and so, they will introduce the past circumstances of technological development to achieve this technology for practice use and its possibility in the future. This technology can be expected a greatest demand not only in Japan but also especially in island areas of those countries where typhoon, cyclone and hurricane pass. Challenergy Inc. is now developing overseas market primarily in the Philippines, above all considering of the microgrid systems for the remote island isolated from the main power grid. They will also talk about some specific case studies of the possibility that their wind turbine brings about in the Philippine market.
