WIND my ROOF raises €2M and deploys a new project in the Hauts-de-France region
Paris, 24/10/2023 - WIND my ROOF raises €2M to transform rooftops into renewable energy plants combining wind and solar power with IDEC INVEST INNOVATION Group, business angel Antoine FUENTES and its historical investors EIT InnoEnergy and VINCI Energies. This round of financing will help accelerate the startup's technical, commercial and industrial deployment, as it moves towards a clean, local energy future, highlighted by its recent project in the Hauts-de-France region.
In a global context of energy crisis, at a time when the electron is becoming the sinews of war, in a world where we can no longer ignore the human impact on the environment, self-consumption of renewable energies is a real vector of transition. The idea of becoming an electricity producer may seem complex, but it's not. The legal, economic and tax frameworks have been in place for several years now, making it easy for any individual or legal entity to set up a self-consumption power plant. We break it all down for you!
WindBox: the wrong installation ideas
The WIND my ROOF contact box is full of requests for information, often very pertinent... and sometimes a little far-fetched. Because there's no such thing as a stupid question, and because behind every query lies an opportunity to learn more about how the wind and our WindBox work, we asked Antoine to deconstruct these atypical requests with kindness...
A history of wind turbines
By the end of 2022, 21 of France's 56 nuclear reactors were shut down. In 2021, almost 70% of electricity will be generated by this energy source. Against a backdrop of both energy crisis and transition, the diversification of production methods via renewable energies needs to be developed. Over the course of history, many machines have been built using wind power. Some were used to grind grain, while others were used to generate electricity. Today's wind turbines are the fruit of multiple evolutions. What inventions have influenced their development?
The perfect spot for rooftop wind turbines: which buildings and how to install them
While all flat-roofed buildings are eligible for a rooftop wind turbine installation, in reality two steps are required to identify the ideal building. The first is to select sites with high production potential according to certain criteria; the second is to check the technical feasibility of the installation. This article summarizes the criteria for selecting a building for installation, and presents one of the methods used.
Mobility: what if all cars went electric?
On June 28, MEPs voted to ban internal combustion enginevehicles1 by 2035. Only cars powered by "climate-neutral" fuels will be allowed on the market. This resolution will lead to the electrification of our mobility and could result in the evolution of electricity production, which could then diversify and decentralize. If all cars became electric, what would be the impact on electricity consumption?
First self-consumption project: installation of 8 WindBoxes on the roof of a building in Rouen (France)
Wind tunnel testing of the WindBox: WIND my ROOF validates its technology at the CSTB in Nantes
A year ago, WIND my ROOF tested the latest version of the WindBox in the wind tunnel at the Centre Scientifique et Technique du Bâtiment (CSTB) in Nantes. The aim was to validate the prototype, with a view to industrialization and first installations in 2022.
WIND my ROOF goes industrial in Saint Nazaire with the help of SEGULA Technologies and its subsidiary SIMRA
WIND my ROOF has called on SEGULA Technologies and its subsidiary SIMRA to industrialize and assemble the first eight WindBox wind-solar modules, due for release in February 2022. The aim is a long-term collaboration with the French engineering giant.
