Wind Empowerment Wind Turbine Workshop in Luxembourg

Project Windmobile, a Wind Empowerment member organisation based in Ettelbruck, Luxembourg, celebrated its 10th Birthday in 2016 by hosting a conference, and several network members participated in the events. One special event was a DIY wind turbine building course, held by PureSelfMade at the Lycée Technique d’Ettelbruck in Luxembourg.

During the course, participants built a 2F Piggott turbine, which is similar in design to Hugh Piggott’s Recipe Book turbine but has a diameter of 2 metres and uses Ferrite magnets in its axial flux alternator. The students in the course were between 13 and 16 years old and proved to be very ambitious, whereas the Lycée Technique d’Ettelbruck provided excellent equipment.

Windmobile put together a diverse programme for conference guests and students of the Lycée Technique d’Ettelbruck. Network members discussed the progress in Wind Empowerment‘s work, small wind turbine building courses and their impacts, open source technology in the field of (power) electronics, and various other aspects.
