The transport industry is struggling to meet their net zero goals.
For example, the UK’s rail traction continues to produce 3 mega tonnes of CO2, the same as 2019-20, which does not align with the railway's net-zero strategy. 80% of the motion resistance that trains face is due to air resistance, which means a large portion of the energy to drive a train is uselessly dissipated into the surroundings.
With rapidly increasing electricity demands, there is also an increasing risk of blackouts/brownouts, so having accessible energy on site is crucial to power infrastructure reliably.
Treeva makes use of readily available land and passing transport to generate renewable energy, which is predictable, reliable and efficient.
We provide highly efficient turbines, which generate renewable energy due to the roadside winds. The modular design can be easily installed and maintained on the side of roads/railways to power infrastructure to create net-zero transport systems.
Treeva comprises a team of experienced engineers and scientists from Imperial College London with extensive expertise in manufacturing, materials science, and control systems. We have developed a prototype vertical-axis wind turbine (VAWT) that can generate up to 1.5 kW of power. The turbine is designed to be more efficient and cost-effective than alternative competitors, and is equipped with advanced sensors and control systems that can optimise its performance based on external conditions. We have a team of advisors from various industries, including Rolls-Royce, BP, Verizon and Entrepreneur First, and are currently in talks with a range of transport companies such as NetworkRail, National Highways, TfL, SouthWestern Railway, LNER and MSC Cruises
