Edinburgh-based Swift TG Energy (Scotland) has secured a £420,000 grant to further develop its innovative new vertical axis wind turbine – the WindSurf. The Innovate UK grant will be used to help complete the research and development stage of the project, and finalise the manufacture of two full-scale prototype turbines. Swift TG Energy (Scotland) is a home-grown technology company focussing on renewable energies. The Windsurf turbine – which has been described as ‘the next generation of urban wind power technology’ – aims to overcome a number of the technical and economic challenges that arise when generating power from the complex airflows found in urban and brownfield spaces.
