2019: 10 years of expertise in small and medium wind turbines - 22 years of expertise in energy and project management
ENERLICE is a team of engineers and technicians experienced in small and medium wind turbines. We qualify on endurance test benches our 5kw wind turbines that we assemble in our workshop. We develop our own devices for wind turbines control and security. ENERLICE has close and qualified partnerships with manufacturers and partners in the wind business, with whom we share the same values of professionalism.
We work in expertise, preliminary design, maintenance and installation, for our customers: industrial, buildings, farmers, commercial buildings, tourist sites, administrations and so on, and for installations up to 300 kw.
As technicians, our speech is not about selling "at any price". The price of electricity in France is still among the lowest in Europe, and France does not have, for the small wind market, "Feed in tariff" as advantageous as other countries like Italy, the United Kingdom or Japan, which is why, in France, a resale objective is not advantageous in small wind turbines. We therefore favor self-consumption facilities, mixed hybrid installations, off-grid installations, as well as iconic facilities, whose return on investment is appreciated not only in financial terms.
Our value chains are based on renewable energies, with high technical and customer relationship requirements, compatible with ethical and economic interests.
Why wind power?
Domestic or individual wind power, also called small-scale wind power, combines the advantages associated with renewable energy production while being the cheapest clean energy to produce. Its 98% recyclability rate makes it one of the most environmentally friendly renewable energies on the market. The expression refers to wind turbines with a power of less than 30 kilowatts, either autonomous or connected to the power grid. The price is quickly compensated for by the savings made.
The aim of small-scale wind power is to meet minimal needs by supplying electrical equipment on a lasting basis. Domestic wind turbines are mainly used in rural areas and are generally accompanied by solar panels. A mini wind turbine can guarantee the energy autonomy of a small home (caravan) or a sailing boat, or provide for half the electricity consumption of a house. A standard small wind turbine comprises two or three blades and provides electrical power ranging from 100 W to 30 kW.
Small urban wind turbines are built vertically and have been specially created for the urban environment. The power of a vertical-axis wind turbine can range up to 20 kW. In towns, the power of the wind is weakened but turbulent. The directions and speed of air flows vary rapidly, thus creating a particularly unstable environment. The greatest urban turbulence occurs at roof level, which can be explained by the deviation of the air flows, itself caused by the collision between the hot air on the south face of buildings and the cold air on their north face. Small wind turbines, and wind turbines in general, are a vehicle for communication which allows people to display their commitment to the values of sustainable development.
