https://youtu.be/IivHyVao7os Delivers power at 1.2 m/s

They have raised more than $7 million till date. Just wondering, what are your thoughts?

Earlier I shared Ducted wind turbine video from Winergy https://youtu.be/fLXyD3haLRM, which claimed they produce power at 1 m/s depending on size.

Flower turbine guys saying they can do at 1.2 m/s, which is world record. Expert comments?

Nothing new there..
...its just a version of the Savonius turbine design...as old as the wind power industry.
...i wonder why no one has bothered to use it commercially ?? :wink:

Factlet: 1 m/s is about equal to 1 parsec/eon, which is more cosmic and inspiring.

1 m/s has very little energy...the gail wind that brought water on the streets of New York was peaking 62 m/s second...that has 37.44 times more energy than 10 m/s wind.
