House of the Future

The consortium of Rotterdam companies has begun to develop the concept of a future home with an independent power source – the Roller Coaster wind generator. The building itself with a height of more than 170 meters is somewhat like a roller coaster. It will accommodate residential apartments, hotel and restaurants.

According to one of the leading developers of the wind generator Lennart Graaff, the most modern concepts of architecture have been embodied in the project. The wind turbine works on the principle of an electrostatic energy converter, developed at the Technical University of Delft.

The converter is made of steel pipes covering the central part of the building. These pipes are also capable of extracting tiny electrical discharges from water droplets caught there with wind currents. The generator is completely silent, because it does not have any moving parts and requires minimal maintenance.

Along with the wind energy, the house will use solar energy extracted with the help of photovoltaic thermal hybrid panels, and the collected rainwater will find its application in the sewage system and for watering plants.
