A little bit about us

Aurea

Aurea develops wind turbine technologies for applications when other renewables are not a viable option. When properly designed, wind can play a crucial role in reducing environmental impact, increasing energy savings, and sustaining energy needs independently from the electrical grid. The company’s first product, Shine, is a smart, portable, micro wind turbine that charges USB devices while doing outdoor activities. The second product, Flare, is an urban wind energy system for high rise buildings that creates electricity from naturally-occurring wind tunnels.
