Airborne Energy Ltd
Airborne Energy is an exciting startup company in small scale wind turbines.
We are developing a novel vertical axis turbine aimed at the market where wind conditions may not be ideal. With the variable and turbulent wind that are typical in domestic and small industrial settings, the standard ‘propeller’ design of horizontal axis wind turbine is not optimal.
The Airborne design seeks to take advantage of wind from all directions over a wide range of speeds, while avoiding the disadvantages traditionally associated with the vertical axis approach.
Airborne Energy is also innovating on electrical aspects of the design, with a generator designed for low rotational speeds, and an inverter optimised for this generator. The overall system will be capable of generating electricity quietly and reliably in all conditions, meeting the standards of the Microgeneration Certification Scheme, producing feed-in tariffs for the owner and reducing carbon emissions.
