Wind Turbine

The Wind Turbine is a machine that converts mechanical kinetic energy of the wind into electrical energy. As a part of the GVCS it enables the generation of clean, renewable power.


Small wind turbines are currently the main class being considered as a community-scale solution for power. These turbines may be as small as a fifty watt generator for boat, caravan, or miniature refrigeration unit. Small units often have direct drive generators, direct current output, aeroelastic blades, lifetime bearings and use a vane to point into the wind.

Open Source Ecology Europe and -Germany are working on a prototype VAWT design: Germany/Wind_Turbine. Research and development is currently concentrated at TiVA, a tiny wind turbine prototyping platform. With this very small turbine, we can easily change parts, try out new ideas and increase the quality of the design on a small scale in a fast and inexpensive way.

The wind turbine is currently in the Research phase of product development.

There are a wide number of Open Hardware turbines, that are currently under consideration for adoption/consideration as a part of the GVCS.
