High output from low wind
WINDJOULE is a high output device that has been designed to capture the low average wind speeds which are typical in populated areas all over the world. It uses 0uses drag and lift components to maximise the available wind resource. The articulating blades are automatically orientated by the prevailing wind current to their optimum position of drag, lift, or downwind.
The revolutionary hybrid design WIN 5 model:
- has won a UK Government Innovation Award which allowed for wind tunnel testing at Cranfield University.
- tested as providing 3 times power advantage over traditional turbine of the same size.
- is simple and slow revving causing less visual and environmental impact than a traditional wind turbine.
- maximises the available local wind resource, taking advantage of the free and sustainable energy contained in the wind which is all around us.
- is extremely compact making it possible to cluster machines in small spaces as close as possible to the point of use. (only 15m high).
Future developments include smaller versions that are intended to be mobile for remote temporary deployment and an emergency relief version built into a shipping container. The unique low level and compact nature of the device makes this possible.
