Wind turbines can convert wind into electricity – when a constant wind is blowing at near to the optimum speed. The electricity generated depends on the strength of the wind which may not match the electricity demand profile of your building.
Electricity is difficult to store, although you may be able to sell a surplus to the Grid (at a low price) and can buy electricity (at a higher price) when the wind is not blowing. You will need to allow for planning permission on large installations.
Generally the electricity generated by a wind turbine increases with the wind speed, the size of the blades, the height above the ground, the distance from other buildings and the distance (in the UK) from London.
We prefer to work in conjunction with architects and M&E consultants from the earliest stage to ensure that there is a clear understanding of how we can help to deliver a sustainable building with a high carbon offset.
