In this book, the authors present topical research in the study of the types, design and efficiency of wind turbines. Topics discussed include modelling ice accretion and its effects on wind turbine blades; the challenges and possible solutions towards public acceptability of horizontal axis wind turbines as a clean energy solution for the future; optimizing high-rise facade-integrated wind rotors; and wind energy extraction and storage by a modified VAWT.
