CBC Wind Energy
CBC Wind Energy, founded in 2010 in Rhode Island, is dedicated to solving the challenges of wind energy generation in the built environment. Led by our CEO, Robert Baxter, and supported by experts in engineering, risk management, compliance, and sales, we design stationary wind energy structures that maximize performance, survive extreme weather events, and seamlessly blend into the built environment. Our innovative designs harness wind energy efficiently, starting in lower wind speeds and producing over twice the power of traditional renewables.
Our team has the energy, experience, proven track record, and vision to succeed. Members bring degrees in engineering, finance and law; plus decades of relevant experience in distributed wind energy industry, real estate, construction, finance, legal, engineering, B2B sales and marketing.
CBC's Wind Energy Structures
CBC's Wind Energy Structures are a transformative technology. Its efficient use of its enclosure and the dynamic chamber housed within results in a wind energy system capable of providing low cost power, energy security and compatibility with a broad range of built environments ranging from commercial office buildings to airports.
The gap in the nation's energy technology portfolio is a distributed wind energy technology capable of mass adoption. Until recently, this gap could be thought of as a square hole in a wooden board. Traditional horizontal axis wind turbines were very tall, very unwieldy round pegs. The current market leaders in the distributed wind energy sector provided pegs which were too small, too complicated, or too expensive to easily fit in this hole. CBC saw this problem, conducted thorough outreach and research with target markets, designed a solution which met the requirements and expectations of the market, rigorously tested and refined it, and presented our solution; a cost-effective, resilient, unobtrusive, and efficient square peg. The CBC Wind Energy Structure is that square peg, and it fits into the gap perfectly.
