Boosters for windmills which help them work more efficient. A novel technology that make the wind streams faster and helps the windmills produce more energy.
Over het initiatief / About the initiative
In welke fase zit jouw initiatief? / In what stage is your initiative?
Heb je jouw initiatief al gevalideerd? / Did you validate your initiative?
Yes, I validated it with a person who works in green energy branch, but not directly in wind energy branch and the technology got support from him.
Meer informatie over jouw initiatief / More info about your initiative
Boostwind is separate detail to the windmill which consists of 3 parts and, collecting the wind from the sea and air, makes it faster before entering the windmill.
So the average speed of the windmill is 18-19 km per hour. But with the booster it can be up to 10-15% faster. So the wind streams speed can increase to 24-25 km per hour.
And it will have a huge influence on the whole wind farm/park, if only one windmill will work 10-15% more effective, imagine what kind of effect it will bring to the windmill farms which have thousands of windmills.
This technology is needed for wind mill and wind turbine manufacturers to produce the same amount of energy with the smaller amount of windmills and save costs on windmill production and maintenance.
Wat zijn jouw volgende stappen om het verder te ontwikkelen? / What are your next steps to develop the initiative?
So right now I have a BMC ready, also I have a very first MVP of the booster made of paper and carton, now I want to bring it into 3D to have the digital version of my model.
Also I want to validate the initiative with the person who works directly in the wind energy branch because earlier I didn’t find that person to interview.
Also I want to contact tech universities or people who work in wind energy branch to help me make the first physical prototype and test it in the aerodynamic tube.
Wat heb je nodig om (nog meer) impact te maken met dit initiatief? / What do you need to make (more) impact with this initiative?
I need more connections in the world of wind energy to find more people who can be interested in it and reach out to windmill manufacturers who may need my technology.
So the main problem for me right now is reaching out to the right people and presenting them the startup.
This is why I would appreciate to take part in this program and gain more fruitful connections, plus get some tips from people who have been building the similar startup and maybe change the concept or my business model if I would be advised to.
