"Our small wind turbines are a step in the right direction: In the future, energy will be produced and consumed locally.”
In Belgium, an alternative to traditional wind turbines has emerged thanks to ENGIE’s partnership with Fairwind. Instead of large blades placed high on a mast, small blades rotate around a vertical axis. This mechanism allows wind to be caught at low altitudes and produces green electricity, all with a reduced footprint and decreased noise levels. This solution meets the needs of farms and SMEs while limiting their CO2 emissions.
