Wind Energy in the Built Environment

by Sander Mertens
published 2006 • ISBN 0906522 35 8 • ix + 170pp • 37.50

 

This book describes the wind resources in the built environment that can be converted into energy by a wind turbine. It especially deals with the integration of a wind turbine and a building in such a way that the building concentrates the available wind energy for the wind turbine. The three different ways to concentrate wind power are examined: wind turbines on the roof or at the sides of a building; wind turbines between two airfoil shaped buildings; wind turbines in ducts through buildings.

The author's analysis leads him to conclude that wind energy conversion in the built environment, making use of the concentrator effect of buildings, is a promising renewable energy source.
