Harnessing the Wind with Jets of Air

Clip: 08/06/2019 | 4m 45s

Demand for wind energy is growing globally. In this episode of Innovation Hall, we visited RPI's Center for Flow Physics and Control, where we checked out some research underway there that uses small jets of air to reduce turbulence around wind turbine blades. The idea is that this will make them more efficient and less prone to breaking, which means harnessing more energy from the wind.
