Accio Energy, Inc. was founded in 2008 by Dawn White to combine an innovative wind energy technology with deep manufacturing expertise, creating a disruptive cost model. We believe that compelling economics will drive adoption, leading to a reduction in global greenhouse gas production and stemming the effects of climate change.
EHD wind energy has long held promise, but Accio is the first and only team to attain net energy positive output, first achieved in 2010. Subsequently, Accio has amassed a world-leading IP portfolio and improved hardware prototypes by orders of magnitude using proprietary 3-D multi-physics modeling to guide designs. Accio Energy is now scaling the technology in both our development center and outdoor demonstration sites.
In addition to numerous private investors, Accio Energy received early funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the State of Michigan Public Service Commission, and the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences.
