Amertat Energy

The energy challenges in our planet, particularly in the Nordic countries, require urgent attention. These challenges are the high cost of electricity transmission, the limited availability of solar energy, conflicts over large wind turbines and their non-recyclable blades, as well as the incompatibility of small-scale wind turbines with both harsh climates and residential areas. The solution is our innovative high torque VAWT that maximizes energy output in average wind speed, thereby increasing the availability of green energy and reducing reliance on fossil fuels. The turbine is designed to be 100 percent recyclable, suitable for urban areas, and compatible with harsh climates. The company is focused on selling electricity production equipment that is driven by our innovative solutions. Our product is a VAWT, for which a patent application has been filed to protect the unique technology. The primary market segment is in Finland and the Nordic countries, and subsequently, we have plans to expand our operations into markets across Europe and eventually worldwide. By offering cutting-edge VAWT solutions, we aim to provide sustainable energy options and contribute to the global transition towards cleaner and greener power generation.
