ACT Blade Technology

    ACT Blade expands the boundaries of current blade technology by addressing the core problems of our wind energy industry. In today’s world, the development of viable sustainable energy alternatives is more important than ever. Wind energy has always been at the forefront of green energy solutions but if it is to continue to grow, it must remain competitive economically. Wind farms are still too expensive. If we really want to create a greener world for the future, then we must find a way to make the production of wind energy cheaper. This is where the team of experts that make up ACT Blade come in. Our patent pending innovative blade is a solution to all wind energy challenges. So, what makes ACT Blade so special?

    Company

    Company

    Act Blade Ltd designs and develops ACT Blade technology, the most efficient wind turbine blade. It was co - founded in November 2015 by Dr Sabrina Malpede (CEO), Dr Alessandro Rosiello (CFO) and Dr Donald MacVicar (CTO). Together, they have over a decade of experience of developing and commercialising innovative high tech products. The team’s first successful venture was that of SMAR Azure Ltd, which is now a market leader in tailored computerised design applications and analytical software within the marine industry. The company uses its expert knowledge of CAD technology along with FEM/FEA and advanced CFD-Ranse in order to offer engineering services to designers across a range of industrial sectors. All products commercialised by the company are based on its proprietary technology, which was developed in close collaboration with major industry players. In 2014, SMAR Azure was awarded a contract by Land-Rover Ben Ainslie Racing team to work on the modelling and analytical tools for its wing - sail catamaran boat. Today, the company has more than two hundred customers worldwide, and continues to grow. From the successes of SMAR Azure, the idea of ACT Blade was born. Since starting the company, the ACT team have won two Mid -Stage Energy Catalyst Awards for their work. These provide funding to support the research and development of new technology capable of addressing the UK government’s ‘energy trilemma'. ACT Blade works in close collaboration with innovation hubs such as the National Composite Centre and Ore Catapult. Ties with other high tech companies and industry stakeholders such as these will help to give a disruptive technology like ACT Blade the support it will need to break into the market.
