SheerWind’s INVELOX new design can generate 6 times the energy of today’s Wind Turbines, producing energy that is affordable, abundant, safe and clean.
SheerWind’s INVELOX provides greater power output at reduced costs and can produce energy from wind speeds as low as 2 mph (traditionally 8 mph or more). Ground level turbines allow maintenance to be done safely and quickly, and noise/vibration is contained.
Capture, accelerate, concentrate. These three words express the essence of SheerWind’s approach to wind power.
Conventional wind turbines use massive turbine generator systems mounted on top of a tower. INVELOX, by contrast, funnels wind energy to ground-based generators. Instead of snatching bits of energy from the wind as it passes through the blades of a rotor, wind is captured with a funnel and directed through a tapering passageway that naturally accelerates its flow. This stream of kinetic energy then drives a generator that is installed safely and economically at ground level.
SheerWind’s INVELOX technology provides greater power output at reduced costs and can produce energy from wind speeds as low as 2 mph or less (traditionally 8 mph or more). Ground level turbines allow maintenance to be done safely and quickly, and noise/vibration is contained.
The system eliminates the need for massive blades and tower-mounted generators, thus eliminating the killing of birds, and the negative effects of blade flicker and noise. It works by capturing wind through a funnel and squeezing the wind flow to increase its velocity while channelling it to a ground-based generator.
