Currently, small wind turbines are under-represented in the renewable energy market as people often perceive that it is cheaper and easier to install photovoltaic solar panels if they wish to go 'off-grid' or to reduce their dependence on fossil fuels.

Traditionally, small wind turbines have had a significantly lower efficiency than their large-scale counterparts, increasing their levelised cost of energy.

Diffuse Wind Energy's product is a small wind turbine that, through being enclosed within a diffuser, can produce nearly twice the power output of existing wind turbines of the same size.

Their additional diffuser also makes their turbine safer and quieter than existing turbines, both of which are key considerations for potential customers.
