Local renewable energy for the world

What is Alpha 311

The Alpha 311 vertical axis wind turbine creates power where it’s needed most: locally.

It’s smaller, lighter, cheaper and easier to install than traditional turbines.

A sophisticated sensor array collects localised atmospheric data

The size, weight and unique shaftless design means it can be installed almost anywhere.

It’s most efficient when placed next to a road or railway, which means it turns even when there’s no wind.

How does it work?

Let’s look at a roadside application:

Our turbines are attached to existing lighting columns close to roads, where they can harvest the massive, untapped energy produced by moving vehicles.

Think about the last time a car or truck rushed past you. That power and energy is what we’re collecting.

Cars and trucks aren’t going away, so let’s make them work for the environment and for local communities.

Local energy production serves local demand and reduces transmission costs, and that reduces costs for the end customer.

How the Alpha 311 vertical axis wind turbine works

How is Alpha 311 different?

  • Local communities receive power
  • Retrofit design means our turbines can fit onto existing infrastructure (for example, lighting columns)
  • Smaller than traditional turbines
  • Cheaper to build and install
  • 360° blades harvest energy from all angles
  • Recyclable
  • Generates energy without natural wind
  • Smart sensors gather granular, localised data

Our vision

We can power the world using cheap, clean energy.

We can lift people out of fuel poverty.

We can make energy poverty a thing of the past.

We can see a future where roads, bridges and buildings are all used to generate cheap, clean energy.

Family homes will be lit and heated by green power.

Businesses will be powered by totally renewable resources.

You can help us, and the world.
