               Zired Wind turbine with integrated Compressed Air Storage


The Zired Compressed Air Storage Wind Turbine is a long-term energy storage device that stores energy in the form of compressed air. Compressed air is a type of potential energy. The device extracts energy from the wind and purely mechanically drives an attached Zired compressor that is mounted on top of the nacelle. The Zired compressor can also compress air with just one revolution. In this way, the air in a reservoir inside the wind turbine is compressed, creating potential energy. The stored compressed air energy, in turn, can continuously power a ground-mounted Zired engine, which converts energy into stable electricity via a commercial power generator. Only environmentally friendly and 100% sustainable materials are used for the entire construction, e.g. Iron, concrete (much less than the other wind turbine) and ceramics. Storage capacities of up to 1 GWh in absolute terms and up to 1.5 GWh retrospectively can be achieved.



Zired Wind turbine with integrated Compressed Air Storage has the following characteristics:

1. Electricity production on demand

2. Huge construction cost savings

3. Simultaneous variable energy storage and 24/7 stable power generation

4. If renewable energy is not available for some time, Zired Compressed Air Storage will
    continue to produce electricity for several days, weeks or even months
    (depending on storage capacity and daily consumption)

5. The Zired compressor and motors used each weigh around 100 kg and not several tons

6. A self-sufficient power supply is quite feasible

7. The simplified design of the Zired Compressed Air Storage Device makes it robust,
    relatively easy to build, and requires very little maintenance

8. Much better value for money

9. 100% sustainable and environmentally friendly construction
    without toxic substances and expensive materials
