Russian Optiflame startup has conducted first field tests of their mobile wind turbine in 2011. The main difference of this type of wind turbine is mobility – testing model was removably secured on a roof rack. The aeromechanical load capacity of the wind turbine was 845 W with the wind speed 10 m / s - (58% of wind power with given wind velocity).
The principal novelty of the design of the proposed WPG is that the wind turbine is enclosed in a fairing of a specific aerodynamic shape which increases velocity of the wind current in the working channel, thereby increasing effectiveness of collection of wind power (wind efficiency). Besides, due to smaller size of turbine blades, operational safety and lower noise level, this model can be installed on building roofs close to the users of the produced electrical energy.
Russian President Vladimir Putin continues Russia's move into renewable energy that began several years ago as a part of Medvedev's effort to diversify Russia's economy away from natural resources. Russia's best wind areas located off the Pacific Coast. Russia's Energy Ministry recently announced that Russia and China are exploring the installation of 50 GW wind power stations in the Russian Far East. Certainly, Russia has enough scientific and industrial skills to create and produce solar and wind equipment.
