A new spin on wind energy generation for underserved rural and remote populations around the world.
Typical wind turbines employ thin, propeller-style blades. Due to the small cross-section a the blade tips, it is difficult to generate adequate force to spin the generator at low wind speeds. AIRGIA's design changes the terms of engagement with the wind.
Wind energy conundrum: the wind is not constant! Energy storage is a major concern, with conventional wisdom focused on exotic battery technology. AIRGIA's CompressedWindTM total system approach changes the terms of engagement with energy storage.
Where to manufacture? And how to transport to the site? AIRGIA's Factory-in-a-BoxCarTM provides a portable manufacturing facility in a repurposed shipping container, thus changing the terms of engagement in manufacturing.
Local, portable manufacturing, together with locally trained talent, to supply product to local villages. AIRGIA changes the terms of engaement with a micro-business approach to the market: 1.5 billion people who have no access to electricity for basic needs: lighting, water, cell phone charging.
