The main problem being addressed by the EOW project is the inaccessibility of low carbon energy systems, particularly in urban areas. Among other problems, the main concerns are that systems are either too expensive, inefficient, or an inappropriate size to be installed in urban settings. The EOW turbines are small wind turbines that are efficient, low-noise and easily installed with minimal maintenance requirements and are thus suitable for many applications. The adoption of such energy systems is important to combat the impact of climate that is being increasingly felt worldwide, as well as to exploit renewable energy sources such as wind whilst coal, oil and gas reserves are depleted. The overall objective of the project is to bring to market fully validated small wind turbines suitable for both rural and urban locations that can be adopted by households, businesses, and public entities.
