Segula Technologies and Wind my Roof recently installed 10 hybrid wind-solar generators on the rooftop of a commercial building. Each system features a 1,500 W wind turbine and two 800 W solar modules. A smart storage system will support a microgrid in the building.
The Idec Invest Innovation group, the business angel Antoine Fuentes, and their investors EIT InnoEnergy and Vinci Energies, have recently invested €2 million ($2.1 million) in Wind my Roof.
Wind my Roof has also installed eight prototypes on the roof of a building in Rouen, Normandy, and plans to carry out four other projects in France between now and the end of the year. It is also working on installing Wind Boxes in Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany.
