China makes breakthrough in wind power technology

Chinese developers have unveiled the world’s first permanent magnetic levitation (maglev) wind power generator at the Wind Power Asia Exhibition 2006 in Beijing.
Regarded as a key breakthrough in the evolution of global wind power technology and a notable advance in independent intellectual property rights in China, the generator was jointly developed by Guangzhou Energy Research Institute and Guangzhou Zhongke Hengyuan Energy Science & Technology Co., Ltd.

The maglev generator is expected to boost wind energy generating capacity by as much as 20 percent over traditional wind turbines. This would effectively cut the operational expenses of wind farms by up to half, keeping the overall cost of wind power under 0.4 yuan ($US 5 cents), according to the new technology's chief developer.
