(Tech Mainstream) Vortex Bladeless is a tech startup which is currently developing a wind harnessing, electricity generator which does not require blades. The Vortex Bladeless wind technology will be comparable to solar energy in features and cost-effectiveness in the future. Current product development is focused in on-site generation and is twofold: meant to work alongside other Vortex units or regular solar panels in hybrid installations.

A detailed description of the Vortex Bladeless generator can be found on Wikipedia:

"Vortex Bladeless is a vortex-induced vibration resonant wind generator, in contrast to horizontal-axis wind turbines (HAWT) and vertical axis wind turbines (VAWT) that work by rotation. Vortex's innovation comes from its unusual shape and way of harnessing energy by oscillation, where a fiberglass and carbon fiber reinforced polymer mast oscillates in the wind taking advantage of the emission of Von Karman's vortexes when a fluid passes over a slender structure. At the bottom of the mast, a carbon fiber rod moves an alternator that generates electricity with no moving parts in contact. Vortex devices don't rotate. Thus, they cannot be technically termed turbines."

Other beneficial features of Vortex Bladeless Wind Technology

*Bladeless turbines are meant to be gearless, oil-less, standalone, self-running, low-maintenance, harmless to birds, silent and lightweight.

*Vortex wind generators are expected to have lower cost, carbon footprint and usage of materials than regular wind turbines.

*Some objetives with Vortex wind power are to have a better space optimisation, response to wind changes, ROI and life-span than blades-based wind energy.

*We want Vortex technology to have similar price and similar operation features to solar panels.
