Aeroleaf®

A proprietary technology based on microelectricity and a multiplicity of turbines. Its ingenious approach consists of accumulating watts to make up kilowatts.

Technology

Current is generated by a (rotor) magnet assembly, which is rotated by a blade moving across a power circuit (stator). Micro electricity and multiple turbines combine to capture the lowest winds and accumulate their power.

Advantages

Intelligent

The electronic regulator in each leaf harvests the maximum amount of power every second.

Silent

Its vertical-axis turbine makes it completely unobtrusive.

Modular

Adaptable to every need, from 500W to 3 kW.

Simple

A Plug & Play system allows the consumer to change the individual Aeroleafs without risk (drop in tension).

Reliable

A solidly-built mechanism, devoid of belts or gears, for greater durability.

Applications

The applications under development, consist in combinations of Aeroleafs® in groups of 3, 12, or 48 that meet the same standards as the Arbre à Vent® (human scale, organic approach, biomimetics, soft generation) but in other forms or on other carrier structures. These applications respond to various uses and electrical needs.

Power

The power generated by each leaf is enhanced by a low activation threshold and its ability to hug to the wind curve thanks to its very weak inertia.

Arbre à Vent®

Each leaf on the tree produces electricity from the slightest waft of air within a radius of 360°. It offers immediate consumption in proximity to end-use, while providing an esthetic, emotional contribution to urban landscapes.

Uses

One WindTree® can supply

15 street lamps of 50W

1000 sq. foot, low-consumption office (20kWh/ sq. yard)

83% of the electrical consumption of a French household, excluding heating

Lighting for 71 exterior parking spaces

One electric car for 10,168 miles per year

Filtering a pool of 1,766 cu. ft. for one year

Advantages

Design

The inspired biomimetic design blends perfectly into any landscape — urban or rural. All of its technological mechanics are hidden. No cable or generator is visible; they’re all integrated within the branches and trunk.

Silent

The silent operation of the vertical axis does away with the sound pollution of traditional wind turbines.

Durable

The Arbre à Vent® was designed to last (25 years) and to resist storms.

Relevant

The Arbre à Vent® can be installed as close as possible to buildings — here’s no line loss and no construction permit necessary.
