A discrete, roof-mounted small wind turbine for large buildings
Buildings account for 40% of total final energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions in the EU alone. Each member state must meet the dual challenge of energy autonomy and reduction of carbon emissions generated by the sector.
The WindBox is a compact module combining a shrouded turbine (4m², 1.60m high) with two photovoltaic solar panels on top. Positioned on the edge of buildings, the WindBox benefits from accelerated winds and good exposure to the sun. Installed power is 1,500 W for the wind turbines and 750 Wp for the solar panels. The technology is now patented (FR3100289).
The value proposition
Able to produce clean power on commercial and logistics buildings with roofs too fragile for solar panels.
Can complete an existing solar panel installation to maximise the return on investment and bring energy generation at night.
Exceptional carbon reduction: electricity produced through the Windbox has a lower carbon intensity than solar panels.
Allows for clean electricity production on buildings in areas with little sunshine.
A 5k€ wind study delivered by the company proves the profitability of a project using WindBox.
