Wind Turbine Concepts for Energy Efficiency in Buildings

Authors(3) :-Kaleeswari M, Madheswaran M, Vijaykumar K

This paper presents the various wind turbine technologies for energy management in buildings. Zero energy buildings are the buildings in which the total energy consumed by the whole building will be equal to the total energy that is produced or generated by those buildings using renewable sources of energy. The structure of building includes the wind turbines in its structure only so that the wind that is passing in the environment of the building can be used for energy generation purpose also for the building. This paper is emphasis on the zero energy buildings for development of the nation. Further, Building augmented wind turbines installed between two buildings are also discussed briefly in the manuscript.
