Breezergy is a highly compact micro wind turbine that produces sufficient output to cover the base load of a small household. In comparison to other big, heavy turbines which are expensive, complex or need heavy machinery to set up, Breezergy consists of just two parts – a generator with a tail and metal blades with a hub.
Weighing just 30kg, it can easily be mounted to any pole available, and can be used in remote areas without access to energy grids. Its metal rotor is efficient yet very robust and cannot be damaged in sandy conditions, heat or salt. Easy to install, the turbine can be mounted with a few screws. The 1kW of power provided can charge a car battery or heat water and would serve a small household in Germany or a normal household in a developing country.
SkyWind has developed the first wind turbine that is durable but lightweight at the same time. The patented rotor is easy to install and very robust. Charging batteries from nothing but the wind with a simple turbine generates much needed electricity at night and in bad weather conditions. This turbine can act as an addition to any solar plant. Once installed, clean energy is generated for years with no fuel, no emissions and at no further cost.
Anyone with a tree, a tower or a building can install such a turbine to generate electricity. The SkyWind NG series turbines are already powering homes across Africa. Ideal conditions include coastal areas or flat areas.
Energy is needed everywhere, for lighting, communication, health and much more. However, lack of and difficulties in generating energy is a real challenge in developing countries. Although sun and wind solutions are widely available and solar panels are put to good use, wind turbines are less so. State-of-the-art plastic turbines have proven too unreliable and fragile.
The SkyWind Company builds the turbines in Germany, and organizes shipment to the selected partner companies. They are then packed in containers and shipped to business partners in the countries of implementation, who then manage sales in-country. Training is also offered on how to use the turbines and on how independent energy systems can be built up over the coming years. In this way, the turbines generate profits for local companies in the countries they will be used in.
