How would you describe your solution in a few words?
Our innovations combine new, dual vertical axis wind turbines with state-of-the-art control, inverters and photovoltaics in one device, which can be placed on or next to buildings with minimal installation costs and on the smallest footprint on commercial, industrial and residential buildings and on existing masts etc. to generate also clean energie at night in winter and to supplement existing photovoltaic systems in order to achieve higher self-consumption rates.
Who are your customers?
The previous customers were mostly developers of construction projects, construction companies, architects, SMEs, real estate and homeowners, agricultural companies as well as solar and electrical installation companies.
We are currently in talks with cable car operators, electricity companies, etc.
What are the environmental benefits of your solution?
The fact that green electricity from the two renewable resources is generated locally on or next to buildings directly by the consumers means that the purchase of electricity from coal and diesel power plants and from local petrol generators can be reduced. Our devices make it possible to use the accelerated winds above the buildings in a simple manner and with the least amount of effort and thus to generate ecological electricity when little energy is being generated by the PV systems. Thus, the CO2 – emissions, as well as the use of materials for storage batteries can be reduced.
How do you manage to exist on the market?
The installed products are very visible, so many customers ask us about them. Due to the current geopolitical situation and the fear of power shortages, grid errors and interruptions, people are looking for alternative power sources. The trend towards a sustainable power supply from renewable resources motivates people to buy our products. We are the first to offer such a combination. Our activities on social media as well as reports in the press and on-line media spread our information and advertise our products.
