Torque Wind Turbine

A small wind turbine to produce your own electricity

The Torque Wind Turbine's dynamic blade design optimizes the conversion of wind energy while moving with the wind and minimizes the loss of energy while moving against the wind.

Unique in the world and developed for decentral electricity production near the consumer.

About the Torque Wind Turbine

Revolutionary design build on proven technology

The design is absolutely unique and patented and in combination with technologies and materials from the automotive and aviation industry a base to become successful.
The result is a small wind turbine that is self-starting at low wind speeds and thus needs no starting power and can even convert wind energy during a storm thanks to the unique and inventive control mechanism.

After testing an uncounted numbers of hours the final shape design of the Torque Wind turbine parts were created and the control mechanism finetuned. The result is a so called vertical wind turbine with a wing that has open blades going with the wind to convert wind energy and the wing having closed blades moving against the wind to reduce the loss in this movement to a minimum.

Problems solved

  1. Autumn and winter wind. In autumn and winter wind energy is even more frequent than in Summertime, which means in special during the dark and cold months in the northern and southern part of the world the Torque Wind Turbine is the perfect solution for the high energy consuming heating season.

  1. Day and Night Wind. Day and night there is wind and the local wind energy can be converted for electricity production. Sun energy is only at daytime available. Sun and wind energy combined are a good solution to have equal electricity production in line with the consumption of homes, businesses operations and EV use.


     
  2. Heating with Wind Power. Using wind power electricity might be a solution for houses and buildings using a gas/ fuel powered water system heating. In the northern part of Europe heating in autumn and winter is the high energy consumption season, and, also the season with the best wind conditions to produce electricity.
    Wind powered electric heating is possible using electric heater boilers (hot water tanks) installed into the existing central heating system. The gas/ fuel power device than only has to work when the electric boiler temperature is too low.


     
  3. No expensive Fuel Generator. No need to buy much fuel for the fuel generators anymore since the wind (sun and water) powered electricity can be used to replace the fuel generator saving money and help lowering CO2 emissions.
     
  4. No CO2 emission. Wind power electricity emits no CO2 at the location of the wind turbine. In the production process CO2 is emitted when using no renewable energy.
     
  5. No Dust emission. Wind power electricity emits no dust at the location of the wind turbine. In the production process dust is emitted at certain production processes.
     
  6. No Heat emission. Wind power electricity emits (nearly) no heat at the location of the wind turbine. In the production process heat is emitted at certain production processes.
     
  7. 5G Multifunctional Wind Tower. The additional 5G telecom towers that are required to complete the existing 4G network for a good coverage of a 5G area can be combined in a Torque wind turbine tower. More applications and devices can be added making it a multi-functional hybrid tower. The electricity produced in the tower can be used for the 5G devices.
     
  8. Clean EV charging. Clean electric vehicle charging with renewable energy electricity becomes more realistic when highways and country roads are completed with Torque Wind Turbine towers alongside the roads.
     
  9. Hybrid Solar Wind Tower. On a Torque Wind Turbine tower a sun tracking solar panel system could be installed to be able to produce electricity from sun and wind energy. This tower also can establish communication options for people and (autonomous) vehicles, provide light, measure and gather data via sensors and observe the local situation.
     
  10. Money Making Street Light. A Torque Wind Turbine tower alongside roads with streetlights can increase safety on the roads at night and during bad weather situations and also give municipalities the opportunity to sell clean wind power electricity. A streetlight than doesn’t cost money anymore but this tower pole can become a Money Making Machine. Adding other devices like LED bill boards and mobile antennas can even further improve the business case.

How to achieve a good Return On Investment

Use electricity for own consumption as much possible. Electricity directly used when the Torque is producing electricity needs no additional investments. Par example:

  • Electric vehicle can be charged to fill up the battery.
  • Electricity can be stored in a hot water boiler for heating tap water and central heating.
  • Use the electricity for cooling via the air conditioning systems, refrigerator or ice makers.

How additionally some money can be earned:

  • Sell electricity to others
  • Sell the data from the weather station
  • Rent out tower spots to mobile telecom providers who have a blind spot in the area
  • Rent out tower spots to organization that measure/ collect environmental data
