ENERGIA LIMPIA XXI. Fewer noise, less space, more savings and above all, it does not kill birds in the process like most wind power technologies. This is the new wind energy technology that is shaking things up in Spain and is called Vortex Bladeless. David Yañez, David Suriol and Raúl Martín, are the parents of the technological creature that is making history and is setting a new ecological trend worldwide.
Innovation and climate change mitigation / ENERGIA LIMPIA XXI. Vortex Bladeless consists of a vertical conical cylinder anchored to the ground by an elastic rod that, with the passage of air around it, oscillates and, thanks to a system of coils and magnets, allows the generation of electricity with that movement.
The new Vortex technology creates a model of wind turbines different from those we know today, those that move in a different way, but that provide many advantages. Clean Energy XXI states that Vortex is 60% more effective than the wind technology that we know today, producing less noise, in less space and avoiding the death of thousands of birds that are hit by traditional windmills.
The goals of the company for the future are to obtain the certification needed to start selling, to set up a feasible method of production and logistics of shipping so they can start commercializing first Vortex turbines for 2020.
