Halo Energy aims to use its patent-pending shroud technology to build one of the world's most efficient, small-scale wind turbines.
Small wind struggles as a viable energy category because most small-scale wind turbines are inefficient compared to conventional energy sources or even larger wind turbines.
We want to change that narrative.
Based on our research, because of higher tip losses relative to rotor size, conventional open-bladed wind turbines become increasingly inefficient the smaller they get. Not so with Halo's shrouded wind turbines. Ours are designed to maintain constant efficiency across rotor diameters enabling them to achieve a power coefficient (Cp) that can outperform conventional comparably-sized turbines.
Halo's 6kW wind turbine can be used in a broad range of on-site generation applications. But we believe its compact size and high electrical output make it uniquely suited for installation on telecommunications towers, offshore oil & gas platforms, and mobile power facilities that typically rely heavily on diesel generators as their primary or backup power source. Within these applications, our turbine can be mounted to existing structures eliminating the need for expensive stand-alone towers and foundations. We believe these highly concentrated markets will allow Halo to deploy a single solution that can be applied across an organization's entire portfolio.
By deploying the Halo turbine to offset the consumption of diesel fuel, facility owners lower their OPEX by reducing the cost of electricity and the many logistical challenges of diesel transport and refueling.
