Video and write-up about a recent test session of the Uprise Energy Mobile Power Station
One of the ways Uprise Energy maximizes the performance of our portable wind turbine is by utilizing proprietary electronics to manage rotor RPM so that it follows changes in wind speed, maintaining an optimized tip-speed-ratio. This allows the machine to benefit from the exponential energy in wind gusts and is the feature we refer to as Dancing with the Wind.
Our Cofounder and CEO, Jonathan Knight, was on the Beyond Zero Emissions radio show in Melbourne, Australia talking about Uprise Energy and the Mobile Power Station. Here is an in-studio video of the interview that covered a lot of ground and is a great way to learn more about the company background and the portable wind turbine we're bringing to market.
When reviewing electrical power options for remote (often times off-grid) regions, there are three primary options one would likely consider: Solar Power, a Diesel Powered Generator or a Wind Turbine. Comparing these three is interesting, but not always equivalent.
