Skoopr

Helping families to tackle climate change at home

Pitch

With a Skoopr on the wall of the house, teenagers see the carbon footprint of their family’s energy use fall. Skoopr collects air hitting the house to feed a high speed generator that is optimised for low speed and turbulent urban wind conditions. Costing the same as an Xbox and installed in less than two hours, Skoopr is ready to work all day.

With school strikes for climate and rising guilt about holiday flights, conversations around the kitchen table in homes across Europe are heating up. Teenagers are eager to take action and parents are faced with competing priorities. Skoopr tackles two problems. Family options to reduce their carbon footprint require big investments or changes in behaviour – SKOOPR provides an affordable and painless first step for most families. Wind energy potential in the urban areas where most families live has not been realised due to inadequate products on the market – SKOOPR solves these by redesigning wind-generation from the ground up.
