SheerWind recently signed a licensing agreement that will allow its technology to be marketed and deployed in Denmark.
The agreement will enable wind-power developer E-Venturi, based in Slagelse, Denmark, to introduce SheerWind’s Invelox wind delivery system to potential customers. The pilot project is expected to be built in Denmark before the end of the year. E-Venturi will be the first company to market SheerWind’s technology in Europe.
Denmark leads the world in wind energy penetration, with 39.1% of its electrical consumption coming from wind power. The Danish government plans to quadruple wind power production by 2050 and is pursuing a goal of complete independence from fossil fuels.
“We plan to market this innovative solution to some of the world’s leaders in renewable and environmental advancements, and expect it to aid Denmark in reaching its renewable energy goals,” said Lars Lindebjerg Peterson, CEO of E-Venturi.
Invelox is a cost-effective, high-performance alternative to conventional wind technology. The system uses no above-ground propellers. Instead, it employs a funnel-driven system that captures the wind and brings it to ground-level power turbines and rotors for safer, easier and cheaper operation and maintenance.
The technology is safe for humans and wildlife, requires less maintenance than conventional wind systems, and produces more electricity per dollar invested than conventional systems.
