Aeroturbines offer architects the unique opportunity to integrate wind energy production into a building’s design, hence the name “Aerotecture”. Buildings can be designed so as to focus and accelerate winds thereby augmenting the energy Aeroturbines can capture. Aeroturbines are also modular so that more turbines can be installed where more energy is needed. Click here for a gallery of concept drawings from CEO Bil Becker and other artists.
In order to operate efficiently, Aeroturbines must be building attached, above or away from surrounding trees and other obstruction, and in an area with average wind speeds of at least 10 mph.
