Every year at EWB Cardiff we run a practical project to
something useful. The aim of the practical project is to have hands on
experience of building a technology that can be used for human
development. This year we are building a wind turbine following Hugh
Piggott's design www.scoraigwind.com

Livrée aux mille hurlants
Aux voleurs de poussières
Une dame de pales
En costume rafale
Prête ses trois oreilles
à l'amant rugissant
Trois aiguilles à recoudre
Dans le ciel déchiré
Un soleil clignotant
Aux allures de vautour
Une faucheuse obsession
De moissons circulaires
Enfante des syphons
Trois p'tits tours et s'en vont

The Otherpower crew teach some seminars. These guys really know what they are doing.
UPCOMING WIND TURBINE CONSTRUCTION SEMINARS
Contact us for more information if you want to book a seminar of your own here in Colorado for 2-4 students, or seminar at your own location. Many of these seminars we put on are made possible by grant money from universities and community colleges, who sponsor instructors and professors to attend. We can also provide references from past seminars."
Most solar than wind but a wide range of courses in renewable energy systems.
Scope of workshop course - goal and
A six day course in which the participants learn as much as they are personally capable of learning about small wind turbine design and construction. Each day, a modest amount of theoretical introduction will lead to workshop sessions with opportunities to gain hands-on experience of carving wooden blades, winding coils and fitting magnets into purpose built alternators for windpower, wiring, fabrication, erection and all aspects which can be covered as time allows. Participants who bring their own ideas and materials to the course will be welcomed and given assistance where possible.
We would hope to complete one wind turbine during the project, and make progress in the construction of others. Where participants have brought the materials, they will be able to take the complete (or partially complete) components (blades, alternators..) home with them. Other work in progress will remain on site for use in future courses.
