The wind power realms of Paul Gipe
note that I am not an engineering consultant.
I write and lecture on the subject of wind energy
and increasingly on other sources of renewable energy as well."
- In a reference to his readers he directs people to AeroVironment,
Inc., which company held early AWE researcher Dr. Paul MacCready.
- 2012: Paul Gipe met with EnerKite in Husum, Germany
(important international wind energy trade fair,
Husum WindEnergy) 18-22 Sept. 2012.
EnerKite GmbH exhibited AWES progress.
Opportunity and vision editorial by Upper WindPower:
- We anticipate future coverage of AWE by
- We anticipate that Paul Gipe will
address the super resource of upper wind energy reachable by
- We anticipate that his leadership will
help enable conventional wind to bring its resources into AWE ventures.
"an upper-wind revolution may in fact be our best shot at
really displacing fossil fuel and oil." ds,
"Sky Sails already met the multi-megawatt commercial mark
in direct ship bunker diesel displacement"
"What if one could avoid needing a massive tower and just
use 'string'? What if by using string, one then accesses smoother wind
at double or triple velocity with far greater availability? What if the
Low Complexity "Rag and String" AWE design space slashed conventional
wind capital-cost requirements?" ~
Yet, perhaps the
stellar authorship and service career in conventional wind by Paul Gipe
need not enter the AWE era. We honor his service as is. But he is
welcome to take a new higher flight, time permitting!
