Projects within the built environment must increasingly incorporate a mix of renewable energy solutions to comply with stringent building regulations and deliver a ‘greener’ environment.
With ambitious 2050 net zero carbon emissions being set by the Government, and local authorities putting their own emissions goals in place, it’s easy to see why decision makers from the built environment and public sector space are facing increased pressures to come up with solutions to match.
Our small wind turbine can play a valuable part in this. It can be used to provide an additional source of renewable power to hospitals, universities and public sector buildings.
The small wind turbine has been cleverly designed to specifically address all the historical challenges which have previously inhibited the use of wind power within the built environment. For instance noise, vibration, high wind shear and turbulent environments are no longer problems.
We recently installed three Crossflow turbines as part of the Centre for Semi-Conductor Manufacture’s (CISM) newly constructed building at Swansea University. This is part of the wider CISM Energy Management System.
Crossflow’s turbine features low rotational speeds, reduced visual impact, quiet operations, low vibrations and it’s environmentally friendly to wildlife like birds and bats. Plus, it can be roof-mounted helping you overcome the more traditional planning constraints.
In additional to all of this, our turbine offers affordable and clean energy generation that can be deployed as a standalone entity or combined with solar and battery technology. This means it can enhance renewable energy generation in both new build and retrofit applications.
