The first public road in the world to host our wind turbines will be in Telford, in the United Kingdom.

Councils don’t need planning permission for Alpha 311 turbines

The optimal location for our turbines is alongside roads, mounted to street lighting. Placed there, they will be turned by natural wind as well as by the air turbulence created by cars and lorries as they pass on either side.

Do the energy giants need the government energy loan scheme?

Yesterday, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak, announced a package of help for those most impacted by the Ofgem energy price rise. On April 1, around 22 million customers will be hit by an energy price increase of 54%.

The energy crisis: how the hell did we get here?

When talking about the energy crisis, it’s best to start with renewables – specifically wind-powered energy generation. Obviously, wind power is reliant on significant and sustained airflow, and over the past decade Europe has invested heavily in offshore wind farms and has reaped the benefits.
