I am a person with a great passion for research in science and technology. My first encounter with the wind power sector was when I submitted an expression of interest to participate in the construction of the Monsoon (Laos) 600MW wind power project in 2019. Since then, I have delved deeper into this emerging field of renewable energy and began to conceive ideas for improving the efficiency of vertical axis wind turbines (VAWT). After immersing myself in more specialized literature and comparing the operational principles of various turbine types throughout history, I invention a new type of turbine (HAWT) with numerous superior advantages, heralding a new era in decentralized wind energy exploitation. Despite winning some awards, I failed to secure investment, leading me back to my business endeavors where I continued to refine every detail of my invention. Currently, I am in the third year of developing my invention. I participate in this competition with a fervent desire: It’s time for the world to know about it so that I can transition from idea to commercial production.
