A hydroelectric generator barrel is a spinning water wheel that floats on the water surface and turns in the current. The spinning motion drives permanent magnet generators inside. It could generate enough power to light banks of LEDs and light up bridges, buoys, or even charge mobile devices in off-grid areas.
Hydro-Electric Barrel Design Uses Moving Water to Generate Energy
A More Exciting Design For Wind Power | Co.Exist: World changing ideas and innovation / a new turbine design called the Windstrument. They’re hailing the product as "a truly affordable wind energy system,” that’s "quiet and powerful, bird safe, and scalable."
8.10.14 - Why Are We Not Building the Voith Wells Generator Wave Energy Converter Everywhere? - "This wave energy device concept from Voith is as ingenious as it is simple. It is a shore based concrete bunker like installation that allows water to enter a chamber from a submerged opening as the waves move up and down. The water in the chamber rises and falls with the waves pushing a column of air trapped above the water level through a wells turbine generator that makes clean electricity."
Floating Gyro-Stabilized VAWT to Be Tested in Norway (VIDEO) - "A model of a floating gyro stabilized Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) for offshore and near-shore applications, which is called Gwind, will be tested in the harbor of Stavanger this autumn, according to the Norwegian Centre for Offshore Wind Energy (NORCOWE)."
