Founded in 2011, Alchemy Power Inc. designs and markets wind turbine products for low wind speed areas.
Low wind speed is prevalent in urban areas, roof tops, as well as off grid locations. In fact, the average wind speed on Earth is considered “low wind speed”. At low wind speeds, it is not sufficient for the wind turbine to simply turn or rotate. The turbine has to generate consumable power, even at low wind speeds. As the wind speed increases, the consumable power increases as well.
Alchemy’s products are designed to be deployed in a few hours and last for years.
Why does low wind speed matter?
Most places on earth have an average wind speed of 3 m/s. If the wind turbines in the market today are deployed – most of them will not even spin. Some of them will turn or rotate, but will not produce consumable power. Click here to learn more.
Using the patented Alchemy Wind-Accelerator™, Alchemy Power Inc. accelerates the wind speed and focuses this accelerated wind on the turbine. This increases the power generated by the wind turbine significantly. There is no magic to this. The physics of this was explained by Bernoulli. Read more on how it all happens.
Alchemy Power Inc. is in the process of developing products at this time and hope to have products for commercial users in 2014.
