Watch 9.3: Wind Power

Available wind power far exceeds the world’s current energy use. A Boston inventor’s accelerator increases the potential for wind energy and its use in urban environments.

Available wind power is currently estimated at more than five times the energy used by the world today. This episode of 9.3 showcases the work of Rob Freda, an inventor in Boston who has created a way to double that power in a system compact enough for urban wind generation.Freda, founder and CTO of V2 (V Squared Wind opens in a new tab)  holds multiple patents as well as architecture and design awards. He studied architecture at Rhode Island School of Design and has two prior successful startups.

 Which way does your energy-production wind blow, toward wind power or somewhere else?
