Award for small turbine

-

A new wind turbine to fill a gap in the market for machines in the 15-20 kW range is being designed by Garry Jenkins of North Energy Associates. Jenkins' idea won him a SMART award from the UK government. His design is for a mains connected turbine targeted at small rural businesses -- particularly dairy farmers. The turbine will be sturdy and simple to maintain, he claims. It is aimed at the UK's post-1998 deregulated electricity market. The award -- worth £36,710 -- will provide 75% of the cost of the design work, due to be completed by March. Jenkins hopes later to test the prototype at the National Wind Turbine Centre in Scotland. If all goes to plan the turbines will be manufactured in the north east of England
