Abstract

Due to the current increase in energy demand, renewable energy sources and their utilization have become a priority. Thanks to the Smart Grid, which is currently under development, and with the help of the evolving technologies, we are trying to extract more and more energy from sources that we couldn’t exploit before or which weren’t economically viable. In this article, we examine the airflow field for a theoretical warehouse building, dependent on roof inclination angle. The purpose of the analysis was to select the optimal angle under which a roof mounted horizontal axis wind turbine (HAWT) could perform efficiently.
