The Wind Lens Power Generation System and its related facility, which were adopted for the 2009 supplementary budget of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology as advanced research facilities (Demonstration Facility for Future Energies) projects, were completed at the end of March, 2011. They had been under construction at Ito Campus since March 2010.
For this project, a wind lens power generation system, developed at Kyushu University by the Ohya Group of the Research Institute for Applied Mechanics to supply sustainable natural energy, was installed on Ito Campus. This project serves as a step toward realizing a low-carbon society and a stable energy supply. Experiments will be conducted to verify advances aimed at utilizing natural energy and expanding the wind lens power generation system.
