Urban Green Energy is the world's leading designer and manufacturer of vertical axis wind turbines. UGE focuses is on providing high performance, high quality, and attractive products to customers around the world at an affordable cost.
While UGE focuses on the design and development of its VAWT line of products, it has also developed numerous applications for its wind turbines which include hybrid streetlights and electric vehicle charging stations.
Founded in 2007, Urban Green Energy has quickly become a leading worldwide wind turbine supplier. Designing and manufacturing cutting-edge Vertical Axis Wind Turbines (VAWTs) with a capacity below 4 kW, UGE appeals to a variety of customers, from homeowners to schools to large stores. Maintaining a uniquely strong and world-wide network of partner, UGE has been able to reach over 55 countries in its short history.
Dedicating itself to customer satisfaction, UGE supplies not only the wind turbine, but also all the additional electronics and hardware required for energy production. This includes both off- and on-grid configurations. As such, UGE offers towers of various heights, inverters, wind interface boxes, and all other necessary electrical equipment. By working with on-site partners, UGE ensures that all installed wind turbines are working in a satisfactory manner.
UGE launched its quietest and more efficient second generation of its well-known Vertical Axis Wind Turbines, with the UGE-4K model.
The first full year of sales for UGE, the company worked off the success of its UGE-4K turbine to launch the eddy and eddyGT models, which work on a similar technology to provide both off-grid and grid-tie solutions for customers. Additionally, UGE announced a new series of "Sanya" hybrid streetlamps, which were installed in a number of high-profile locations.
Urban Green Energy reached 50 countries early on as it entered its second full year of sales, quickly establishing itself as the leader in vertical axis wind turbine technology. The company also launched a series of new products: The UGE 1st Step Weather Station, the Boardwalk hybrid off-grid streetlamp, and the Sanya Skypump EV Charging station, in collaboration with GE.
