BTI Phase V Project - Fall 2012
The success of the previous four projects for Building Turbines, Inc. has led to another working project for the Austin Green Energy Group team of professionals.
The goal of the Fall 2012 Phase V Project will have the Austin Green Energy Group members collaborating with the Texas State University Manufacturing Engineering Design Projects Program to implement specific aspects cited by the Phase I, II, III, & IV Projects at The University of Texas at Austin’s Mechanical Engineering Design Projects Program. This project will focus on the manufacture of a full scale "New Design" wind turbine to the specifications of the tested and approved model in the UT Phase IV Project and will build on the findings in the previous AGEG/BTI R&D projects.
With the "New Design" wind turbine having proven that the power output can be greatly enhanced with some slight modifications to the original design. The goal now is to modularize the wind turbine and greatly reduce the manufacturing, installation, maintenance costs.
The Austin Green Energy Group expects to successfully deliver a better, more efficient wind turbine to Building Turbines, Inc. that will be easy to manufacture, install, and maintain. The lower cost of the “New Design” wind turbine will make it highly competitive in the renewable energy marketplace.
