New Wind is a wind turbine truly inspired by nature. It has two benefits over the traditional wind turbines – it features tiny blades that can be turned even by slight breezes because they are light enough. And second, they are silent and look amazing in urban environments mimicking a real tree.
The New Wind trees are 10 meters high mounted with 63 aeroleaves with micro blades inside. They can generate electricity regardless of the wind direction. Mr. Michaud-Lariviere, the creator of this concept, says the tree is profitable after winds of 7.8mph (12.5km/h) on average over one year.
The Biometric Aeroleaves Energy Trees can provide enough power to supply 15 street lamps or one electric car for 10,168 miles over the course of a year a diagram on New Wind website shows. Far from the potential of onshore wind turbines – just one of them can produce more than 6 million kWh in a year – enough to supply 1,500 average EU households with electricity. However, the Wind Tree can be “planted” in the area where electricity is consumed and it is quite inspiring to see biomimicry in action.
Electricity production can be literally green and beautiful at the same time.

After decades of decimation, rendering the natural resources almost extinct, the world today after much coercion and coaxing from the activists’ node and the fast depletion of renewable resources and environmental pollution have finally begun to dawn on the concept of clean energy. Enter the Biometric Aeroleaves Energy Trees.
The ‘Wind Tree’ uses tiny blades housed in the ‘leaves’ that turn in breezes A French firm is installing the first model at Place de la Concorde in Paris ‘Aeroleaves’ generate electricity in wind speeds as low as 4.5mph (7km/h) This can provide enough power to supply 15 street lamps or one electrical car for 10,168 miles (1,360km) over the course of a year Monstrous, noisy conventional wind turbines may soon be a thing of the past thanks to tree-shaped wind turbines being installed in Paris.
