British clean energy startup Renewable Power Sources has launched a subsidiary in Aurora, Colorado, to promote its RPS-G1 centrifugal induced wind turbine. This is the second subsidiary of the company, after Energy Paths in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
In December, company founder Fahad Abduldayem competed in a Monshaat completion in Saudi Arabia, sponsored by ArabNet, and won first place for his innovative clean energy technology. He will now compete in a similar completion in the United States at a yet to be announced date in 2020.
Renewable Power Sources North America will work to introduce the RPS-G1 wind turbine to the United States. Jamal Alkhaibari, director, commented on the technology: “For example, if we were to stack the units, we could build an RPS-G1 system that would produce almost 5 GW of power, and it would only require about 200 acres of land to do so. Because it’s stackable, less acreage is needed for larger systems if that’s necessary, compared to other renewable technologies.”
He also stated, “It’s capable of providing utility-scale clean, renewable energy production without polluting the environment, can eliminate all future greenhouse gas emissions related to power generation and that of many other greenhouse-emission sources, and can not only help stop climate change, but can power the technologies needed to reverse it. Anywhere electricity is needed, RPS-G1 can provide it and can use existing infrastructure that’s already in place, or we can place it town by town with localized infrastructure if necessary.”
