Energy-XS Receives the DST-Lockheed Martin Award

May 3rd 2013, Energy-XS receiving the DST-Lockheed Martin Award from the Chairman of the Planning Commission Dr. Ahluwalia, also present are Ray O. Johnson, CEO Lockheed Martins, Dr. Baba Shiv of Stanford Business, Sid Burback, Director IC2 University and others. The Innovation is a Vertical Axis Wind Turbine.

Energy-XS tops FICCI’s Top 50 Innovators list

I can’t understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I’m frightened of the old ones. -John Cage

Energy-XS is extremely happy to announce that its revolutionary VAWT technology has been selected among Top 50 Innovations in FICCI DST Lockheed Martin India Innovation Growth Programme. 

Energy-XS Campaign

A free Wind Turbine for rural India for every turbine sold in urban India.

India has established itself as the third biggest wind energy market worldwide in terms of new installations.

Based on data provided by the following agencies, 1) National Sample Survey Organisation (NSSO), 2) Household Consumer Expenditure Surveys, 3) Central Electricity Authority (CEA), 4) Electricity Connections and Sales Statistics and Census of India (Population and Household Statistics), the average electricity consumption per household in urban India in placed at 950KW/h and the total households in urban india is placed at 23.9 million, out of which the small wind market in India is placed at 83,000 MW. We get here an idea of the market size. If Energy-XS should target only .01% it translates to 8.3MW or over 4000pcs of XS-2000 turbines.

Magic Lamp Avatar...

ENERGY-XS will introduce soon the XS series alternators for direct drive of VAWT's having  the following outstanding characteristics:

  • Exceptionally compact, allowing the design of wind turbines driven directly without gears and delivering up to 600 W/Kg power-to-weight and 2500W/dm3 and power-to-volume ratios.
  • Low losses and high efficiency at rated speed.
  • PMA design allows wind turbine to start at very low wind speed because of minimal cogging torque.
  • Excellent energy production and load characteristics even at intermediate speeds, up to 50% of rated power available at half the rated speeds.
  • Highest reliability and lifetime: MTBF of 100,000 hours and more can be considered standard.

India at energy cross-roads

India is at a point where acute energy scarcity is hampering its industrial growth and so its economic progress. The conventional power generation which is carried out by coal and mineral oil-based power plants contribute heavily to greenhouse gases emission. And setting up of new power plants which would be inevitably dependent on import of highly volatile fossil fuels with their highly volatile prices, is hardly an alternative.

Vertical axis wind turbines v/s Horizontal axis wind turbines

In the wind turbine business there are basically two types of turbines to choose from, vertical axis wind turbines and horizontal axis wind turbines. They both have their advantages and disadvantages and the purpose of this article is to help you choose the right system for your application.

Wind power potential of the country

India’s installed wind power capacity (cumulative): 11,000 Mw Ranks 5th after US, Germany, Spain and China Wind energy potential estimated to be: Over 45,000 Mw Total generation target for 11th Plan period: 10,500 Mw* Govt has announced generation-based incentive of 50p/unit of electricity from wind power projects subject to maximum of Rs 62 lakh per Mw to increase investor base India ranks fifth in the world after the US, Germany, Spain and China with a wind power installed capacity (cumulative) of about 11,000 MW.
