US Patent: 8,899,927: (Link)
Morone Wind Energy is a startup company developing a new type of wind power generator.
MWE’s focus is to explore the depths of one simple question:
Can large sails be used to dramatically reduce the cost of wind-generated power?
Most scientists have given up completely on drag-based wind power generators, but we are now at a stage in history where the inherent limitations on rigid
propeller-based wind power generators are staring us right in the face. We believe that the future of low-cost bulk power generation from wind energy is with
a new breed of designs using large, soft airfoils. Our device, thanks to its utter simplicity, bears potential to produce power at an extraordinarily cheap rate.
The “fuel” is free, so the economics in the discussion really are limited to the construction & operation costs of the machine.
Our machine incorporates biology-inspired design principles, essentially designed to carry out, in reverse, the principles of flapping flight.
