State of the art of Windthermal Turbines: A Systematic Scoping Review of Direct Wind-to-Heat Conversion Technologies

Abstract: Windthermal turbines convert wind directly into thermal energy. Albeit it is an uncharted field of research, the overall system efficiency and costs of fully developed windthermal turbines are promising; since they can contribute to a sustainable energy transition. We identify the current state of the art of windthermal conversion principles, technology maturity, applications, substitutes, advantages, and disadvantages.
