A power-generating wind-driven turbine is disclosed which offers the advantage that it is compact and lightweight and is capable of producing a substantially greater output than a conventional windmill with a comparable size rotor. The turbine comprises an outer shroud and a nose cone which provide a streamlined wind collecting inlet designed so that the air stream is contracted to increase its velocity through the turbine blades, plus an exit section designed to exhaust the air stream with a minimum of turbulence.
