“The turbines that generate wind electricity we know are perfected to the smallest detail, from its outer shape to its interior, all with the aim of achieving maximum energy efficiency while they work. Today is a mature field study, but that does not mean that an alternative can break the mold and show that there is another way do other things: some Spaniards want to do that with this concept of windmill.”

Bladeless Vortex is a Spanish start-up company, created with the aim to develop new technologies to convert wind energy, differently from the conventional way. This original idea is to capture the undulatoria energy generated by the wind when it hits an object, as could be seen in a flag; the result is a bladeless aerogenerator.

After several years of evolution and design, the product developed is pivotal mast that collects the energy of motion in a ball joint located halfway up. The result is a much lower associated costs of materials, makes it possible placing the elements near each other, emits almost no noise, does not represent a danger to birds in flight and it would be possible to adapt to urban environments, all financed by crowdfunding.
