Wind power is the use of air flow through wind turbines to mechanically power generators for electricity.Wind power, as an alternative to burning fossil fuels, is plentiful, renewable, widely distributed, clean, produces no greenhouse gas emissions during operation, consumes no water, and uses little land. The net effects on the environment are far less problematic than those of nonrenewable power sources.
NewWind is a company that want to revolutionize energy production inspired by nature and using the wind turbine to make more relevant, with specific design.
Jérôme Michaud-Larivière is co-founder and CEO in NewWind.
When I created NewWind in late 2011, my principal idea was to bring an original, quality electrical service to as many people as possible, doing away with the very concept of the “wind turbine” and transforming it into the most organic form possible.
We quickly realized that, beyond electrons, we were able to produce something more — a certain connection to beauty, indeed a feeling or an emotion — in a modest, yet essential, contribution to the emergence of Sensitive Cities.
The enormous acclaim we have met daily illustrates that consumers are ready to change their energy model. We’re thrilled to be able to participate in that movement and, thus, help each and every one of them find their own peaceful place in the world.
Latest inovation from NewWind is Arbre à Vent – Innovative looking tree, use Micro electricity and multiple turbines to capture lowest winds and transform into power.
Each leaf on the tree produces electricity from the slightest waft of air within a radius of 360°.
Advantages of Arbre à Vent :
Blends into any landscape – urban or rural.
The sound is lot lower then traditional wind turbines.
Arbre à Vent is designed to last 25 years.
Can be installed as close as possible to buildings.
Arbre à Vent can produce power that is equivalence to 1,905 lbs. of coal or 41 4-gallon of jerrycans of fuel.
Arbre à Vent is installed in many location such as:
– Les Pléiades, sheltering its Genevan headquarters at the corner of Avenues Louis-Aubert and Peschier.
– Kindercity in Yverdon
– Sustainable city export project for the city of Astana (the capital of Kazakhstan).
– The Cité des Télécoms
