Alpha 311 named one of Europe’s top startups

Sifted Sustain 100

Following the announcement about our collaboration with The O2 Arena, the news site Sifted has named Alpha 311 in its list of Europe’s Top 100 Sustainability Startups.

Backed by the Financial Times, Sifted provides news and analysis about Europe’s innovators and entrepreneurs, so it’s an honour to be included in their list, especially so early in our life.

Other companies featured in the list include electric vehicle startup Arrival, Helios, Bulb and Northvolt. We’re in good company.

So, what did Sifted say about Alpha 311?

“Sure, Alpha 311 is all about local energy production, but it’s also changing the face of wind energy.

“Instead of those majestic wind turbines atop hillsides and alongside motorways, its vertical axis turbines are blending into lampposts, railway and road signs. Extraordinarily, it produces power even with a slight breeze, but motorways are an ideal spot due to the airstreams created by traffic.

“Notably, AEG is a client — London’s O2 Arena (the Millennium Dome) is now the first venue in the world to trial their turbines. 10 will be installed at present, which is enough to power one of the arena’s restaurants — but AEG is planning to install the turbines at its arenas worldwide.”

It’s amazing and humbling to see Alpha 311 on the list.
