Why wind power plants?

Electrical energy

The foundation of our society

Human civilization is fundamentally based on the use of electricity. From preparing the first coffee in the morning to the evening entertainment program, we rely on a constant power supply in our everyday lives. According to the International Energy Agency, global electricity production and consumption have risen continuously year on year since 1974 (IEA, 2019).

In 2021, 94.7 % of the electricity generated worldwide came from flammable fuel sources. Sustainable wind, solar, hydro and geothermal energy accounted for only 5.3 %.

With social concerns on the political stage

Governments and citizens alike are becoming increasingly aware of the impact that certain actions have on the climate, particularly with regard to industrial processes. Governments around the world are working to implement environmentally friendly measures at home and abroad, which were set out in the Paris Agreement in 2016. The focus is on the energy industry and, in particular, alternatives to energy generation.

Where does electricity come from in the EU?

In 2022, 2,641 TWh (terawatt hours) of electricity were generated in the EU.

Almost 40 % of this came from renewable sources. Fossil fuels accounted for 38.6 % and nuclear energy for just over 20 %.

The most important fossil fuel for electricity generation was natural gas at 19.6%, followed by coal at 15.8%.

Why wind turbines?

The generation of electricity through movement

Wind turbines generate electricity by converting the kinetic energy of the wind into rotational energy. If they are connected directly to the power grid or equipped with special storage units, the systems develop into autonomous energy suppliers whose output is limited only by the strength of the wind.

Ensuring sustainability through renewable energies

Since the use of electricity is a necessity today and its generation is also the main source of greenhouse gas emissions, we urgently need to adapt the associated processes in the fight against climate change. One solution already exists: renewable energies from wind and solar power are heralding the energy revolution.

What are the advantages of vertical axis wind turbines?

Although vertical axis wind turbines are less efficient than horizontal axis turbines, they still have certain characteristics that make them the best solution in densely populated areas.

360° wind pick-up

No wind measurement necessary during operation.

Icon: You speak wind
Great wind compatibility

Also functional in the event of persistent turbulence and a constant change in wind direction.

Low environmental impact

No drop shadow, less of a threat to flying animals and less noise pollution.

Uncomplicated maintenance

Robust design with the generator only a few meters above the ground.

Icon: Smaller in Size
Smaller dimensions

Easier to transport, more practical to install.

Icon: Striking Appearance
Distinctive look

Works tirelessly and looks fantastic at the same time.

More advantages that speak in favor of small wind turbines?

With their low height, small wind turbines are also accepted in urban areas.
No ground-sealing (concrete) foundation is required for installation.
Due to the smaller size/height, a lengthy planning permission procedure is not required in most countries.
Our small wind turbines are quickly assembled and ready for use within a few months.

Becoming a climate protector with LuvSide technology

As an established manufacturer of vertical small wind turbines, we are convinced that clean and decentralized energy generation is the future.

The design of our systems not only harnesses the power of the wind for the general public, but also supports an autonomous energy supply by storing surplus energy or feeding it directly into the local grid. This means that electricity can be produced and offered locally, enabling many regions to recognize the opportunities offered by green electricity – be it companies, organizations or private households.

You can find more interesting information about the energy transition, the available turbine technologies and small wind turbines in general in our Windy blog.

LuvSide has been developing, building and selling small wind turbines since 2014. We are convinced that all people and organizations from windy regions around the world should benefit from our sustainable and autonomous energy supply. This motivates us every day to produce small wind turbines. We are specialists in small wind turbines and offer innovative and reliable solutions for sustainable energy generation – both horizontally and vertically.
