Bio-sourced vertical axis wind turbine - Bio-sourced wind turbines for private and industrial applications

Philéole comes from the desire to use the force of natural elements. The wind is everywhere around us, with different forces, more or less stable or turbulent. It is present in all areas of the world; whether it’s an energetically isolated environment or a hyper-connected urban environment, whether it’s a marine or terrestrial environment. Philéole's solution is focused on the energy developed by the wind. Thanks to the wind and the natural and sustainable materials used, this solution offers the tools for a cleaner world, where the effect of climate change can be mitigated. To meet this challenge Phileole has created a 3-blade wind turbine on a vertical axis. This wind turbine aims at providing a sustainable, ecological, green and bio-sourced energy production to any human who would like to be independent energetically. Highly customizable, Philéole's solution can be installed on sailboats, private houses, buildings highways and many others.

Key features

  • A sailing boat need 626,4 Wh (Watt Hour) for a sailing day in the Atlantic - counting on a wind force of 8,5 m/s during 4500 hours yearly, it represents up to 1465 hours of navigation without producing carbon emissions
  • Philéole's triple wind turbine solution produces 300 Watts (with 2,5 m/s strong wind) & up to 400 W/m2 of electricity production, representing 1398 Kw yearly (average electricity consumption of a family
  • Produces 0 g CO2/kWh compared to electricity produces by coal ( 820 g CO2/kWh), by gaz (490 g CO2/kWh), by solar panel (27 gCO2/kWh), by nuclear center (12 gCO2/kWh) - 100% reduction of CO2 emissions for each kWh
  • 75% biodegradable and 100% recyclable - Made from cornstarch
  • Philéole's wind turbine is silent, doesn't induce any kind of nuisance and does not degrade the earth


  • By using Philéole's solution and taking into account 4000 hours of wind on average per year, customers will cushion their investment in 10 years
  • Due to its ease of assembly, the wind turbine can be easily repaired and maintained, avoiding heavy replacement costs
  • Lifespan is estimated at over 30 years
