This Hummingbird-Inspired Wind Turbine Silently Delivers Local Renewable Energy

This bird-inspired wind turbine replicates the motion of a hummingbird’s wings to generate local sustainable electricity.

It’s called the Tyer Wind and it’s developed in Tunisia by Anis Aouini. Each wind turbine mimics the mechanical action of a hummingbird’s wings and generates energy on both the upstroke and the downstroke.



The biomimetic wind converter is in the very early stages of various open-air and real conditions tests related to power efficiency, aerodynamic behaviour, material resistance, stress over the mast.

The bird-friendly wind turbine could be adapted to any environment (rural or urban) and can be used as a small consumer system or be part of a large industrial wind farm, to generate local renewable electricity.
