How can wind turbines be made more efficient?

    Wind turbines have pretty much reached peak efficiency.  One of the few ways to make more efficient turbines would be to make them taller.  The problem is that it is complicated to carry the wind blades at that length on highways or train from the factory to the point of assembly.  One suggestion to make wind turbines more efficient is to use magnets to eliminate friction in one mega turbine.  This will make one of these mega turbines as effective as 1000 regular wind turbines.  Another efficiency model would use helix shaped turbines that need less maintenance and kill fewer birds.
