Initiated by Sonaca, in 2017, Renewind cracked the code on harnessing untapped wind power.
Our cutting-edge aerodynamic technology takes full advantage of the building acceleration effect — leveraging the natural wind acceleration that occurs on top of buildings — to turn your rooftop into a sustainable energy generator.
With Renewind, the future of green energy isn't just at your doorstep; it's right over your head.
Renewind in a Nutshell
Renewind, in a Nutshell
Urban Wind Turbine
Renewind's Urban Wind Turbine is designed to seamlessly integrate with your existing solar panel setup.
By harnessing the unique aerodynamics of urban landscapes, our turbine captures wind energy even at low speeds, providing a reliable source of power when the sun isn't shining.
Cutting-Edge Aerodynamic Technology
Renewind's Urban Wind Turbine is the culmination of years of aerodynamic research and expertise borrowed from the aircraft industry.
Our team has leveraged this solid know-how to optimize wind energy capture like never before. The result is a turbine that not only delivers exceptional efficiency but also minimizes noise and vibration.
By fine-tuning the flow of wind through our groundbreaking rotor design, we've developed a solution that excels even in the variable wind conditions typical of urban landscapes.
Building Acceleration Effect
Renewind's Urban Wind Turbine doesn't just capture wind; it capitalizes on the unique aerodynamic features of building structures to maximize energy capture.
Situated on the acroteria of buildings, our turbine benefits from the building acceleration effect—an aerodynamic phenomenon that can enhance performance by an astounding 20 to 80%.
This innovative approach allows us to tap into an often-overlooked source of increased efficiency, making your renewable energy investment even more valuable. With Renewind, you're not just installing a wind turbine; you're leveraging the very architecture of your building to fuel a greener future.
Emerging as a spin-out from Sonaca, a leader in aircraft wing technology, Renewind's Urban Wind Turbine brings aerospace-grade expertise straight to your rooftop.
By adapting best-in-class aerodynamic innovations from the field of aviation, we've engineered a turbine that sets new standards in efficiency, stability, and performance.
With Renewind, you're not just adopting renewable energy; you're investing in technology forged from aerospace excellence.
