Vertical Sky, the next generation wind turbine for sustainable, silent and decentralized energy production.

Project description

First silent wind turbine technology for local power generation

Wind power generation has experienced growth over the last few years. Although currently used for centralised power generation, this technology has great potential to be employed as a distributed source. With EU funding of the Vertical Sky project, Agile Wind Power is developing the first large-scale vertical-axis wind turbine for use in distributed applications. Its core innovation is a continuous and self-optimising adjustment of the rotor blades – a real-time rotor blade pitch control. As a result, the rotational speed is kept low, resulting in a threefold lower noise. Its simplified logistics for transportation and installation, and environmental compatibility with birds and bats allows closer location to populated areas or difficult-to-access areas.
