The Quiet Revolution – Industry Europe

The Italian electrical conglomerate A.C.E. recently launched ‘Ecolibri’ – a revolutionary, small wind generator that is the clear technology leader in its eld. Philip Yorke takes a closer look at a product that is setting new standards in ‘micro’ energy-ef ciency and silent operation.

One of the most important breakthroughs achieved by the Ecolibri micro wind-turbine is its silent running ability. The noise of the wind turbine blades is undetectable at -20Db, even in the presence of strong winds, as the blades are designed in such a way that they cannot rotate at a higher speed than the wind itself. Consequently they do not cause the noise levels and ‘hiss’ experienced with traditional wind turbines.
