Silent rooftop wind turbines could generate half of a household’s energy needs
The use of wind turbines in households is becoming more and more popular. Wind power like other natural power sources can be quite volatile, but it’s still a highly sustainable power source for those who want to live an off-the-grid lifestyle. A Dutch renewable energy start-up called The Archimedes, developed this product named Liam F1 turbine which is a small and silent wind turbine that will change the way we view wind power. Their product will be able to generate 1,500 kWh of energy per year and can be installed on the rooftop of a house. The best part is, that when the Liam F1 is matched with solar panels, it can generate enough power for an entire household. This way you can alternate between the use of solar power and wind power, having a backup in case the weather conditions are not suitable for you.
“This wind turbine combines an austere and elegant design with an unequalled high efficiency. Based on natural forms the Liam F1 converts, with minimal resistance and almost silently, no less than 80% of the available energy from the wind into power. A result that has never been shown until now.”
The Archimedes windmill is a new type of wind turbine comprising three circular blades which are wrapped around one another and then expanded.
