The wind turbine gearbox market is valued at approximately $4.5 billion and is growing
Thus the market opportunity for a high-efficiency gearbox technology is substantial. Our factoring of the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratories (NREL) wind turbine modeling methods corroborates the inGear’s advantages as follows:
- improves energy production by over 5% in typical conditions without increasing the maximum speed of the rotors.
- allows for an increase of maximum rotor speed without increasing maximum generator speed.
- transmission is impervious to torsional loads.
- doesn’t require a crane, resulting in easier service and reduced maintenance costs.
