Chetwood Associates, a firm out of London [with offices in Leeds and Birmingham] is proposing a Â£2.5 million â€œwind damâ€, over a lake in Russia.
The dam, which would be located over a gorge at Lake Lagoda in north-west Russia, includes a cup-shaped spinnaker sail, believed to be the first of its kind, which will generate renewable energy by funnelling the wind through an attached turbine.
…it is also highly effective at capturing the wind because it replicates the work of a dam and doesnâ€™t let the wind escape in the way it does using traditional propellers.
