Aerotecture Wind Turbines (USA)

Aerotecture International seeks to radically transform the dominant paradigm of energy production and consumption around the globe. Blending the concepts of aerodynamics and architecture, Aeroturbines are wind electric turbines designed to be attached to buildings or integrated into the very form of buildings. With Aeroturbines, buildings and other structures will not only consume electricity, but produce it on-site.

Aeroturbines are wind turbines designed for urban settings. Invented by University of Illinois industrial design professor, Bil Becker, Aeroturbines are a new development in wind turbine technology. Aeroturbines can be installed on existing rooftops or built into the architecture of new buildings to provide clean renewable electricity at its site of consumption. Aeroturbines are uniquely suited to urban environments because they are: * Noise and vibration-free * Safe for birds * Able to utilize multi-directional and gusting winds * Self-regulating (no overspeed protection required) * Low maintenance * Made from low-cost and readily available materials

Aerotecture also offers SunStrut photovoltaics, as well as other renewable energy services, based out of Chicago.
