Proposal/ Submission Title

Globine Energy - Unleashing the Potential of Wind Energy

Problem Statement

Globine Energy addresses the urgent need for scalable, efficient, and environmentally friendly renewable energy solutions in the context of a global move away from fossil-based energy. Horizontal axis wind turbines, which currently dominate the renewable energy market, encounter limitations in terms of costs, scalability, efficiency, location, environmental & visual impact. The world thus far has failed to fully benefit from the enormous potential offered by the abundant natural resource of wind. With ambitious global targets for renewable energy such as the EU's goal of reaching 42% by 2030, there is an imperative for a significant shift in approach. Globine Energy's patented vertical axis wind turbine offers an approach that enables accelerated and widespread adoption of wind energy and drives the crucial transition towards a sustainable future, helping accelerate a reduction in dependence on fossil fuels.

Which do you think are the innovative factors of your idea?

The main innovative factors of the Globine Energy Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) include scalability and versatility, enhanced wind capture with dynamic gate technology, low wind speed start-up capability, zero-waste manufacturing, a modular build approach, and ground-level installation. These factors enable the VAWT to adapt to various energy needs, maximize energy extraction from the wind, operate efficiently in low wind speeds, reduce waste in manufacturing, simplify construction and installation and provide flexibility in site selection, making it a highly innovative and promising solution for renewable energy generation. Overall, Globine Energy's approach enables greater numbers of urban-based turbine installations and reduces the emphasis on offshore installations.

Which benefits would your idea bring to the industry?

Globine Energy brings multiple benefits to the industry, including scalability, increased efficiency with dynamic gate technology, low wind speed performance, environmental sustainability through zero-waste manufacturing, cost-effectiveness with a modular build approach, versatility for various applications, enhanced safety in work practices, simplified planning processes and the ability to contribute to achieving ambitious global targets for renewable energy penetration. These advantages drive widespread adoption of renewable energy, improve turbine performance, enable deployment in diverse wind conditions, reduce environmental impact, save costs, provide installation flexibility, ensure a safer working environment, and support the realization of ambitious global renewable energy goals. Globine Energy has the potential to revolutionise the wind industry, making sustainable energy accessible, affordable, and efficient for a greener and more sustainable future.

To which challenges does your idea provide a solution to?

Globine Energy provides solutions to the following top challenges:
- Limited scalability and efficiency of current renewable energy installations.
- Environmental impact of wind turbine installations.
- High costs associated with the development, installation, and maintenance of wind turbines.
- Limited availability of suitable land for large-scale onshore wind projects.
- Distance of offshore wind installations from urban areas, requiring extensive transmission infrastructure.
- Concerns over the visual impact of wind turbines in scenic and populated areas.
- Limited operational lifespan and reliability of existing wind turbine technologies.
- Dependence on specific wind conditions for effective power generation e.g. shut down during stormy weather.
