Wind turbine construction

From march 14. 2016 to march 18. 2016 a small windturbine construction course will be run by Jonathan Schreiber and Luiz Lavado Villa both experts in building Hugh Piggott’s turbines.

Description of the course

Learn how you can build yourself a small wind turbine,
and how to use it as your own local and sustainable energy supply.

In the course we build a 2m diameter wind turbine together as a group. The wind turbine is based on Hugh Piggott’s 2F design and we use common materials and scratch. All parts of it (generator, rotor, steel frame) will be built by ourselves and after the course you should be able to build your own at home.You will also learn how to set up a stand alone system using renewable energy sources, to provide power for a house for example.
