Even More Creativity on the Energy Front

I have never been a big fan of blade dependent wind turbines. At the very least they are low density power generation precisely because of the limits of blade surface area with which to receive air molecules, and thus to translate their kinetic energy to a drive shaft. This post from illustrates what thinking outside of the blade can come up with (be sure to check out the related wind power links on the same page).
