Interest in small turbines on the rise

"The interest in small machines is on the rise," said Jos Beurskens, wind project manager at the Dutch national laboratory, ECN. Beurskens, a veteran of the wind business, had been given the job of summing up his observations of EWEC 2006 and singled out small wind turbines for a mention. "At each conference we see more persons attending the small machines session. Hopefully these are signs that in the near future the niche market for small units for electricity and water supply for the developing world and remote rural areas will start growing like the market for large electricity generating wind turbines," he said. Small wind turbine manufacturer Proven Energy reported a "very successful" show and appointed the company's first Greek distributor. "PV Sun Systems will take the lead on the Greek market for us and develop small wind applications in Greece," said Proven's Alan Powell. "There are already a number of very interesting projects that are pushing forward," he added.
