PowerNEST is the only rooftop renewable energy system that can fully power a medium- to high-rise building. It’s a flowing kinetic sculpture of wind & solar tech, a stunning crown that provides on-site energy for buildings five stories or higher. PowerNEST is a ready-made, eye-catching solution for conforming to new legislation, like Local Low 97 and the European Commission’s “Fit for 55” emissions standards, before 2030.

Beyond its award-winning architecture, the innovative design of PowerNEST generates 6x more energy than solar panels alone. It harnesses the Venturi effect to add 40-60% more windflow, creating power even in a slight breeze. Cutting-edge solar panels are arranged bi-facially to generate energy above and below while being cooled by the air. The smart combo of wind & solar in PowerNEST captures more energy, in more weather conditions, than other on-site systems

Reducing the electricity bill is just the beginning; this is energy independence driven by the power of nature.

Sustainable Building Regulations

The Paris Agreement marked a global mindset shift when a majority of the world’s nations agreed that humanity is irreversibly affecting the climate. Back at home, each country introduced its own regulations aimed at transitioning to renewable energy and meeting global sustainability goals. Many countries took immediate action by enacting environmental policies, which often included new building codes. PowerNEST helps buildings across the globe conform to their new local emissions standards.

How much energy does PowerNEST generate?

PowerNEST uses smart wind & solar design to capture 6 – 10x more electricity than rooftop solar panels alone. Perimeter fins grab building facade upflow and channel it over a vertical wind turbine. The entire PowerNEST structure funnels airflow using the Venturi Effect to dramatically increase wind speed over the turbine. A bi-facial solar canopy captures more sunlight, at more angles, than a normal solar installation. The entire system can be adapted to optimize energy capture in your local weather conditions. That’s how PowerNEST silently generates enough electricity to fully power a 15-story residential building.

PowerNEST’s energy output depends on:

Available roof space: minimum 50 m2 (550 sq ft) 50m2

Roof height: minimum 5 floors

Building orientation

Geographic location

Surrounding obstacles

What makes PowerNEST unique?

PowerNEST aerodynamically enhances wind & solar power with a modular structure designed to capture maximum energy for medium- and high-rise buildings. PowerNEST is the only rooftop renewable solution that combines all these benefits in one system:

Wind turbine

●  Wind flow is guided over a vertical turbine, increasing its output 4x

●  Aerodynamic features pull facade upflow through PowerNEST

●  Venturi Effect accelerates wind speed 140 – 160%

●  Generates power in winds from 2 – 15 m/s

●  Survives winds up to 60 m/s

●  Noise level aligns with all building codes

●  Zero annoying acoustics or vibrations

Solar panels

●  Layout is optimized to capture max. energy per square meter/foot

●  Wind-induced cooling adds 10 – 25% efficiency

●  Bi-facial solar panel arrangement is optimal for PowerNEST heights (5+ stories)

●  Cutting-edge hardware is made to the highest quality standards


●  Customizable color & appearance

●  Extends roof and building lifetime

●  Built to last 20 – 50 years

●  The only on-site solution to meet BENG/NZEB/local law S7(LLS7)

●  Meets EU & international building codes

●  Helps qualify for LEED or BREEAM certification

●  Modular 7.2m x 7.2m (23’ x 23’) units tailor to available roof space

●  Bird and bat friendly while not attracting nests

●  Visible statement on the power of renewables building management

Building energy management

●  Year-round renewable energy production

●  On-site energy, like having a rooftop power plant

●  Reduces electricity bills and pays for itself in 5 – 10 years

●  Independence from gas and fossil fuels

●  Replaces back-up diesel generator

●  Provides energy at peak times, reducing net-metering dependency

●  Lowers battery capacity required for energy storage

●  Smart Grid applicable, plug-and-play management system is ready to interface with your building.

What is PowerNEST?

PowerNEST is a rooftop system that stands as living proof to an energy-resilient future powered by nature. It’s a smart combo of wind & solar hardware capable of fully powering medium- and high-rise buildings with renewables. Installing a PowerNEST on your building can help it meet new emissions standards, cut its electricity bills, and lower its carbon footprint. You can achieve off-grid energy independence and reduce the world’s use of gasoline and fossil fuels with PowerNEST.

PowerNEST Fits Many Building Types

Any residential, commercial, or public building with a flat-roof that stands 5+ stories tall can install a PowerNEST. A minimum space of 50m 2 (550sq. ft.) is required for one unit, but more roof space dedicated to a PowerNEST system equals more energy output. PowerNEST is a perfect solution for urban and landlocked buildings. And in coastal or island areas, PowerNEST can work on rooftops below 5 floors.
