Wednesday 14 October 2015 – The Grand Prix National de l’Ingénierie (French National Engineering Awards) is to award its Industry and Technology prize to the Wind-it project, an innovative renewable energy generation solution developed since 2007 by Elioth. The principle is to install one or several vertical axis wind turbines (VAWT) onto the structure of high metal pylons specifically designed to accommodate them. This innovation is the tangible convergence point of communication networks and renewable energy. Top marks for its original technical architecture and its application potential!
