Hover Energy Conducts Aerodynamics Testing of New Wind Technology with Group NIRE, in Association with Texas Tech University
Hover Energy tested its transformative wind turbine technology in Lubbock, Texas at Group NIRE’s field site.
Group NIRE and Hover Energy, LLC (“Hover” or the “Company”) announced today that Hover tested its new wind turbine technology in real-world conditions with Group NIRE, in association with Texas Tech University. Hover successfully completed the wind test that will allow for the aerodynamics optimization of the Company’s wind turbine.
The technology behind Hover Energy’s unit is a ground-breaking integration of aerodynamics, magnetic levitation and magnetic power generation that delivers a more efficient turbine with a wide range of applications. Because the turbine allows for laminar air flow, initial installations will focus on commercial rooftops. The unit is also distinctive for its simplified design, direct DC power generation, low and high wind velocity operations, and automated power generation at varying speeds.
Hover anticipates introducing a utility-scale wind turbine after the introduction of its rooftop model. The Company possesses a growing portfolio of 24 patent filings, eight of which have been issued or allowed, and its first pilot project will be installed in the coming months.
Group NIRE is pleased to work with Hover as it commercializes a wind technology that is expected to accomplish a step change in efficiency for the industry.
