Rooftop wind energy system analysis. Finite element analysis of wind energy turbine blades being developed by Swift. The colours here show areas of wind deflection by the carbon fibre rotor. The use of these turbines is known as microgeneration. They generate carbon-free or low-carbon heat and power for individual businesses and communities. Wind power is a renewable and clean source of energy for electricity production. The wind turns the blades, and this drives a turbine to generate electricity. Photographed in Edinburgh, Scotland, UK.
