Semtive, a new American renewable energy company with headquarters in Silicon Valley, today introduced NEMOI, one of the world’s most efficient, safe and affordable wind turbines for residential, commercial and industrial generation of power.
Semtive, founded by a team of Argentines, is producing turbines designed for low wind speeds — unlike traditional wind farms that rely on speeds of 30 mph or greater.
It’s the latest in small wind innovation. CEO of Semtive, Ignacio Juarez discusses small wind power and the Nemoi — a new vertical-axis wind turbine for rural and urban areas that is optimized to work at low wind speeds, so that even a soft breeze lets it begin generating energy.
The first time you see a Nemoi wind turbine, you may not realize it’s a turbine at all. A white and silver metallic structure about the size of a garden shrub, Nemoi has three vertical blades that spin carousel-like around a central axis. The spinning is constant, but completely silent, and it doesn’t look fast enough to be generating much energy.
Argentine startup Semtive, a designer of wind turbines for urban and suburban areas, presents a sustainable energy generator for domestic use and humanitarian aid. Thanks to a vertical axis, low speed wind turbine, and a solar panel, this portable device can store up to 2500W of renewable energy; enough to power a refrigerator for 24 hours, or several appliances simultaneously for 8 hours on a single charge.
Desarrollaron una turbina eólica de eje vertical para uso urbano. Son pequeñas columnas que se pueden colocar en una terraza o, incluso en un balcón, y producir electricidad con la fuerza del viento.
Semtive produces one of the world’s most efficient, quiet, safe and affordable wind turbines for home and business – and we deliver them right to your door for easy installation.
Semtive wants to change how we think about and generate renewable energy – especially wind. Wind is the fastest growing source of renewable energy because it is free, clean and ubiquitous – wind is everywhere. The breakthrough from Semtive was creating a turbine that is affordable, noiseless, safe to wildlife yet produces energy in very little wind. Meet Nemoi!
We are a young Silicon Valley-based company, advanced in the use of new technologies and R&D in the wind turbine field. With local manufacturers, local partners and local distributors, we are bringing Semtive turbine technology to the US market, creating jobs and improving local economies.
Our goal is to be a global impact leader in decentralized energy generation through the democratized use of renewable power. Our vision is to contribute to a clean, efficient and socially impactful energy solution that can be used by anyone, anywhere in the world.
Join us in this new Clean Energy Revolution.
Creating affordable energy systems, Semtive works to democratize access to clean, renewable energy with the same quality products around the world, in Latin America, Africa, Asia and now in the United States.
Semtive’s manufacturing process produces wind turbine systems locally, reducing the carbon footprint and the shipment cost of traditional wind turbines. In the process, the company also generates local jobs by hiring local people to install and maintain the turbines, completing the cycle of clean jobs and healthy customers.
Because Semtive turbine systems generate clean energy through renewable sources, like wind, the company helps to reduce the carbon footprint of the turbine, which is manufactured in 98% recyclable materials.
