ANERDGY is acting in the field of smart building and infrastructure technology. ANERDGY has developed an innovative modular flexible renewable energy generator system, the WindRail, an adaptive and flexible smart building technology. The WindRail can combine three renewable energy sources in one solution: solar radiation, both photovoltaic and thermal, wind flow/effect hitting a flat faced building powering a small but effective turbine and uniquely venturi tunnel exploiting the pressure difference over the edge of the building to maximise turbine power. The system can be easily installed on new and existing office, industrial and residential buildings in urban and sub-urban areas. In ProGETOnE, Anerdgy is going to supply the information and data collected from our side on the field of smart building infrastructure technology, and is going to supply the elements to install the renewable energy system Windrail or another adopted system or components to improve the energy efficiency of the building.
