Dear Companists,

We want to thank you for your generous support and the great feedback. We have received many new contacts/enquiries for pilot projects, sales, and financing. €176,000 already in the first week - A big thank you to everyone!

In this update, we would like to present the MOWEA system's economic efficiency to you. We have also added this section to our profile. You will find it in the profile overview section under “Economic efficiency of the MOWEA system.”

 

Economic efficiency of the MOWEA system

The calculation of the amortization period (period within which the invested capital is returned) is based on

  • a frequency distribution of wind velocity from Hamburg and
  • the performance curve of a MOWEA single turbine

to determine the annual energy yield. A turbine thus produces 420 kilowatt hours of energy [kWh/a] per year in Hamburg if it is installed at a height of 10m. The energy yield increases with increasing installation height.

 

Performance Curve

 

The following diagram shows the advantage of a hybrid system (wind and solar energy) compared to the sole installation of a photovoltaic system at the Hamburg location. The use of two independent, regenerative energy sources reduces the cost of the required battery storage, since the wind usually blows when the sun is not shining (sun/clouds, day/night).

This also increases the safety of the system, as there are certainly days when the sun does not shine at all or when there is hardly any wind. The amortization period of the hybrid system is one year less than that of the solar system.

 

Advantage of Hybrid System

 

Another application is the mounting on telecommunication masts, a booming industry worldwide. The amortization period of a turbine system (8 units) in remote areas is only 2.2 years and thus represents an economical and sustainable alternative to the diesel generator. 

System costs of the application areas are listed as example calculations and offset against the saved energy costs.

In the case of an existing grid connection (on-grid), € 0.28 (average price per kWh at the energy provider) is assumed as a substitute.

 

on-grid

 

In case there is no electricity grid (off-grid), the assumed substitute is € 0.5 (average price for one kilowatt hour per diesel generator).

 

off-grid 

 

This results in amortization periods of

  • 10 years for the hybrid system (wind + solar) (on-grid) compared to the solar system (100% self-sufficiency/independence)
  • 7.8 years for a house roof installation (on-grid)
  • 8.8 years for telecommunication (on-grid)
  • 2.2 years for telecommunication (off-grid)
  • 4.5 years for initial electricity generation, e.g. in developing countries (off-grid)

Note

Investments in startups and growth companies offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, investments in startups or growth companies are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by diversifying the amount they invest in startups and growth companies and not investing the entire amount in one startup or growth company. Professional investors often follow this strategy because it causes the risk to be distributed among several investments. In this way, successful investments can balance other less successful investments.

The shares of the investors on Companisto are subordinated profit-participating loans (partiarische Nachrangdarlehen). Such loans are shares in a business with similar characteristics as equity. If the company becomes insolvent or is liquidated, the claims of the investors (Companists) – just like those of all other shareholders of the company – will be satisfied from the assets in the insolvency or the assets in liquidation only after the claims of all other external creditors have been satisfied. Thus, Companists are treated like any other shareholder of the company during insolvency or liquidation proceedings.

The company information published on the Companisto website is provided solely by the companies. The projections made by the companies do not guarantee successful development of the company in the future. Consequently, investments in startups and growth companies are suitable only for those investors who can cope with the risk of a total loss of the capital invested. Investors make their own independent investment decisions and bear all risks themselves.

The investments are provided and issued by the individual companies. Companisto is neither the provider nor the issuer of the investments, but solely the internet service platform.
