Elevator Pitch

Concise Summary: Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

If one wind turbine can produce energy, a 1.5-MW turbine would produce 1.5 MW× 365 days × 24 hours × 25% =3,285 MWh =3,285,000 kWh in a year, then if we reduce the size but increase the number of turbines and put them in a tighter space, then create the wind aspect using energy made its renewable.

About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

Everyone has a need for renewable energy, with further in-depth research you could work out if a production of energy is possible, which if it is then is very significant to all who use electricity. Nowadays everything has a life time, any product has limitations, but humans shouldn't we need energy without it nothing is sustainable as we are not.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

Sustainability

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

There are many ideas out there, the base one in a similar field, is standard wind turbines, that you see now in everyday lives, but as they come under complaints all the time my smaller, therefore more aesthetically pleasing idea would suit the public interest.

Your Solution
Founding Story: Share a story about the “Aha!” moment that led you to get started and/or to see the potential for this to succeed.

I have many 'bright ideas' as i call them, but most arent overly useful, but this one i really feel there could be potential to be useful and if there is a chance i can help then i want to be a part of it. To add to this i recently had a conversation with my girlfriend who had found a interesting fact, she teased me relating to the fact Apple and Microsoft for example where thought up my university students who had belief in there ideas thus giving me my 'go for it' moment.

Select Sector(s): To which of Unilever's categories of sustainability does your solution apply?

Greenhouse Gases.

Measurable Impact
Audience: Who have you identified as your customers/recipients and why? How will you get your solution to them or engage them in your initiative?

As a marketeer there will be a large advertising campaign to get the public on side, once the research haas gone ahead then this will be shared with the government and relevant companies to get the idea out there so it can become a bigger energy saving solution.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date and expected impact in the future?

Its a new idea , so no major impact to date, but all dependant on the research results and after testing the impact could be huge.

Growth, Finance & Leadership
Scaling the Solution: How do you intend to scale your activities over the next two years (e.g., reach new markets, diversify solutions, etc.)? What will make this possible?

Initially, research and marketing the solution is the key stages to complete. once the idea is known on, hopefully, a world wide scale then it could become a large scale solution. What will aid this, is the marketing side i have many contacts within the University of Plymouth where I'm currently studying thus i could use current and past students to help as part of this.

Financial Sustainability: What is your business model to ensure financial sustainability?

Depends on the success of thje research as this is an initial idea it will need to be successful to create a profit but if it is the potential is huge, the financial aspect needs to be looked at once research has taken place.

Experience: Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
