CAN IT POWER A WHOLE HOUSE?

Yes. The energy produced is stored and distributed as you need it. The excess can be sold back to the grid for profit.


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • How do the nanoleaves work? What are their components?

    Nanoleaves, composed of nantenna electromagnetic collectors, convert both “visible” and “invisible” radiation into electricity. This sophisticated approach allows for energy to be gathered at a high efficiency even after the sun has set, or on a cloudy day.

  • How does it capture wind's kinetic energy?

    High-tech piezoelectric ribbons are integrated into the branches, twigs and leafstalks. These high-resistance ribbons harvest a substantial amount of kinetic energy as the tree responds to environmental forces with tension, compression, bending, shear and torsion. Wind, as well as vibrations and raindrops thus contribute to the Energy Tree’s gathering of convertible energy.

  • Is the trunk strong enough? How does it work?

    Once produced, the electricity travels down a trunk made of high-strength recycled polymers and synthetic resin. The electricity may then be stored or transferred, by way of specially designed connectors, to power a home or electric car, or to be sold back to the grid as an eco-friendly source of income.

  • How efficient is the Energy Tree in turbulent weather conditions?

    The robust construction of the Energy Tree’s components allows it to weather the most turbulent of conditions. The combination of nanoleaves and piezoelectric ribbons ensures a fruitful harvest of electricity throughout the seasons – rain or shine.
