From Owls to Wind Turbines: Biomimetic Solutions for Quieter and More Efficient Wind Energy

The team at Biome Renewables is making wind turbines more efficient and less disruptive to their surroundings by using nature as their inspiration. Wind turbines have been a vital source of green energy for many years, providing power to millions of homes and businesses across the globe. However, even modern wind turbines can be made more efficient and environmentally friendly. Biome Renewables is one such company that is looking to nature for inspiration on how to achieve this goal. Biome Renewables has developed its "FeatherEdge" technology, inspired by the silent flight of owls, to reduce noise levels by up to 80 percent.

Biome Renewables is one of the Biomimicry Institute's Ray of Hope Prize® finalist teams.
