We created Archee as a platform for innovation and primary research in areas neighbouring architecture. Within 10 years of creating energy efficient, low carbon footprint houses in oximoron platform, we found many ideas and solutions that we plan to develop.
Inovative wind energy harvesting device was invented during work on off grid building. We were searching for wind turbine that would fit the landscape and could not find one, so we decided to design it ourselves.
After experiments with different configurations of airfoils, we arrived at simple yet elegant idea of grass flapping in the wind. Concept was tested on scale prototypes and preliminary aerodynamic calculations.
Preliminary assessment indicates that SPEAR is superior to conventional turbines by the means of aesthetical and environmental impact, and also competitive in the power/price ratio.
