DoE-Backed Startup Puts a Twist on Offshore Wind Energy

DoE-Backed Startup Puts a Twist on Offshore Wind Energy

So far, rotor-based turbine technologies have been the main generators of wind energy. But researchers have been exploring different options, away from the typical design, as the way forward in terms of cost-efficiency and environmental impact. To that end, the Department of Energy (DoE) has put its money behind a new system by startup Accio Energy . The company's novel technology for offshore systems uses a combination of static panels and water drops to generate energy. Accio Energy was founded in 2008 by serial entrepreneur Dawn White to combine wind-energy technology with manufacturing expertise to disrupt the cost model for offshore wind energy, according to the company. The Accio system uses what’s called electrohydrodynamic (EHD) charge separation principles rather than typical wind-turbine rotors to generate electricity. Startup Accio Energy has developed a novel w...
