3m Wind Turbine Build Course at Schloss Heinrichshorst

A course was run at Schloss Heinrichshorst during August 2013 where a 3m Hugh Piggott
wind turbine was built with participants from all over Europe. The course was run by V3
Power, a renewable energy cooperative from Nottingham, UK who have been running
wind turbine courses following the Hugh Piggott design for 7 years. More info on V3.

Support for running the course was provided by Boee “Band
ökologischen Rebellen” who are a recently formed group of wind turbine builders based
in Kassel, Germany. Boee supported V3 with the gathering of materials and running of
the blades and metal bases.

About hugh

I live off-grid in NW Scotland and have spent my life playing with wind turbines. I also love small hydros. Hands on renewable energy is my thing and I like to learn and to share my experiences.
