Background of wind turbines

Wind power is sustainable and renewable energy, therefore wind turbines are increased in worldwide.

Especially, Japan is poor in natural resources and effective wind turbines are required.

Wind turbines consists of two axis types.

There are Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine(HAWT) and Vertical Axis Wind Turbine(VAWT).

Basically, HAWT is suitable for large wind power such as wind farms and VAWT is suitable for small wind power.

All wind turbines has simple and beautiful design.

The following book described how to assemble beautiful wind turbines by papercraft.
