A wall made of wind turbines will help power infrastructure

Doucet has unveiled Airiva—an intelligent modular energy generation system composed of multiple vertical wind turbines. Currently a project in development, initial deliveries are scheduled for 2025.

The Airiva system consists of two structures, each housing eight turbines measuring 2.1 x 2.1 x 1.05 meters. According to the company’s estimates, a typical medium-sized home would require five such units to provide 100% of its electrical needs.

In 2021, the startup set out to build a wall of 25 connected vertical turbines generating a combined peak power of 10 kilowatts. This setup potentially produces 240 kWh of energy daily. Experts caution that real-world efficiency may be lower, as vertical-axis turbines are generally less efficient compared to horizontal-axis models.

Several interconnected systems could be deployed along highways or beneath bridges. The technology also holds potential for larger infrastructure projects, such as airports, harbors, or railway stations.
