Generating Renewable Energy with Forest Windmills

Reading time: ( 5 ) minutes


At the end of 2022, I received a divined dream and its purpose was to present us with an alternative solution for our energy crisis in Britain, based on renewable wind power. The solution involves developing a different type of wind turbine, one that more precisely resembles a children’s windmill toy and I was able to see what a functional example looked like within this dreamscape. I was able to see a forest fitted out with propeller turbines, whilst I simultaneously heard a spoken voice over the top that both informed the purpose of the vision and explained some of the particular benefits of this style of windmill turbine over the traditional white turbines with the three long fin blades.

This type and design of wind propeller are said to be significantly more energy-efficient compared to existing turbines, specifically, the white ones that feature the 3 spinning blades. I was directly told they are more efficient, and from this, I am to assume they are capable of capturing and transferring more of the wind’s kinetic energy, which can then be converted into electricity using whatever existing means are suitable.┬áThe more radical part of the solution called for using the existing trees in our forests as natural masts to place these propeller turbines on instead of erecting and deploying them on tall carbon and steel pylons in the countryside.

It is possible that the cost of constructing and erecting the existing artificial pylons compared to existing trees is quite significant and there are a great number of difficulties when it comes to securing suitable sites for on-shore wind farms, making this solution highly advantageous to explore.

It wasn’t precisely clear how many of this alternative style of wind-driven propeller turbines would be needed for a system to work, and neither did it address anything like additional power infrastructure such as cables, motors or dynamos and how they were to be fitted, however, it did seem clear they would have to be upscaled and that this system could be achieved with a very minimal and eloquent setup. In the dream these windmills were displayed attached to the ends of tree trunks in a local forest, something a concept artist or illustrator could no doubt recreate better than I have.

It’s actually quite amazing to be able to think or conceive outside the box and fathom and entertain how something as innocent and simple as a child’s windmill toy could be the leading inspiration behind one of the next potentially most successful green energy generation projects. Who needs this the most? It was recently reported that Scotland has been deliberately felling its forests in order to make way for more of the existing wind turbines, however, with the alternative style of turbine proposed here, once fitted to trees in existing forests, there would be cost savings over erecting masts and this wasteful exercise of clearing trees would become redundant. Can you imagine seeing Nottingham Forest shirts being sponsored by Sherwood Forest Green Energy Initiative? I think this would be a great image lift for our city or indeed any other cities looking to expand into green energy but don’t want the burden of giant pylons.

By moving some of our local energy-generating infrastructure into forests and creating energy-generating windmills out of trees and using the illustrated concave style of curved propellers in these windmills, it would become possible to both produce more energy and solve the problem of space and where to situate new on-shore wind farms. If this solution was properly explored in the form of a feasibility study and then an initiative was taken to construct and implement a pilot project we could assess whether it is possible or desirable to do away with the white masts leaving the inherently natural beauty of the countryside free of wind turbines where they aren’t wanted, although next-generation replacement power lines are essentially still going to be white Y-shaped-masts from what I can remember seeing and I don’t personally find fault or issue with the clean white aesthetic, other than the inability to adequately recycle old or wearing parts.

In addition, the dream made it clear a new wind turbine could easily be incorporated into a fun and aesthetically pleasing design, particularly from children’s perspectives, although in theory they could be painted any colour, from standard white to showcasing city or region’s local colours, or even made to blend in, but in any case, it would be intended become an environmentally friendly and green addition to many of our forests and they can be engineered in such a way as to minimize harm to any wildlife such as birds and squirrels.

When it comes to modernising our means of energy production I think everybody could probably agree on not wanting our population to have to continue to breathe in dirty air pollution and so there is a desirable need to further develop our energy infrastructure and renewable energy technologies and promoting a strategy of self-sufficient energy independence wherever possible, neither relying on Russian gas nor European imported energy that make us vulnerable.

Just because we have the capability to generate energy from renewable sources like wind does not mean we can or should abandon fossil fuels, this is precisely what petroleum is for. Even prior to this vision I was intuitively told that our ‘zero-carbon’ attitude to de-carbonizing society stems from faulty science and logic. The right attitude I was informed of, pushed for: ‘balancing carbon’, which I’ll let the academics ponder over precisely what this means, but it clearly alludes to the idea that producing zero carbon is probably bonkers.

Despite the growing push for electric cars, the British people still love their petrol cars and don’t want to do away with petroleum-powered engines, this is likely going to be reflected in some way, for example, in terms of overall sales, developed infrastructure and greater resistance to change in this area. I was simply told this is because we’ve already established a successful culture around the paradigm of having become a petroleum civilization. However, we shouldn’t be alarmed by this, because this is precisely what the natural purpose of petroleum is for, seeing the world in a spiritual way, every natural resource on the planet has a very deliberate and intended purpose, waiting to be identified, the human mind is often capable of tuning directly into this source of untapped wisdom in the form of received intuitive information. We’re expected to continue to identify, learn and understand the inherent purpose of every planetary resource, and even in exo-planets, we need to know their intended purpose, such as what natural resources to look for and what to mine or extract from them, including planning for the future, in others we can expect further scientific discoveries to be made, we just need a more suitable and reliable form of fuel and ship propulsion than what our rockets currently use.

For now, I hope this article may be able to spark a renewed interest or debate into further wind energy renewables and that a pilot scheme could be considered in the near future with a company seeking to develop the different style(s) of the turbine components, additionally, a suitable forest would need to be selected for it and connected to the grid. I believe this solution could be deployed across different parts of the UK, but nowhere more urgent than Scotland.
