Wind Turbines provide a clean energy source emitting no greenhouse gases and no waste products.
Our vertical axis wind turbine utilizes our proprietary XYO Technology, which substantially improves balancing issues that are common in wind turbines today. The WindSilo design is engineered to allow for much faster spin speeds and greater energy output.
This innovation in turbine design could eliminate expensive traditional balancing methods while increasing performance, reliability and efficiency.
Through the IEDC’s Innovation Voucher program, Trine University’s ‘Innovation1’ department was awarded a grant to assist Perpetual Industries in the development of its proprietary vertical axis wind turbine, "The WindSilo".
Wind is a clean, green non-polluting source of energy which offers a sustainable option for renewable energy.
2019 saw global new wind power installations surpassing 60 GW, a 19 per cent growth compared to 2018, and bringing total installed capacity to 650 GW, a growth of 10 per cent compared to last year.
New installations in the onshore wind market reached 54.2 GW, while the offshore wind market passed the milestone of 6 GW, making up of 10% of the global new installation in 2019 the highest level to now.
Wind energy has gone from a niche to a mainstream energy source in recent decades. For example, wind energy:
Wind energy has expanded by leaps and bounds in the last 20 years. It began the century as a niche energy source in Europe and the US, and ended 2019 as a mainstream source of clean, cost-competitive energy around the world. In 2019, the global wind energy market reached a new milestone of 651 GW cumulative installed capacity, with strong continued growth foreseen across Asia, the Americas and Europe.
Wind power will play a leading role in achieving a low-carbon or – in many markets – net-zero future, one which requires a completely carbon-free energy sector and deep cuts in emissions in all other areas of the economy.

Wind. Wind was the second largest renewable energy source (after hydropower) for power generation. Wind power produced more than 5 percent of global electricity in 2018 with 591 GW of global capacity (568.4 GW is onshore).

Wind turbines kill an estimated 140,000 to 328,000 birds each year in North America.
A vertical-axis wind turbines (VAWT) is a type of wind turbine where the main rotor shaft is set transverse to the wind (but not necessarily vertically) while the main components are located at the base of the turbine. This arrangement allows the generator and gearbox to be located close to the ground, facilitating service and repair.VAWTs do not need to be pointed into the wind, which removes the need for wind-sensing and orientation mechanisms.
VAWTs offer a number of advantages over traditional horizontal-axis wind turbines (HAWTs):
