Modular Wind Energy Appliance
Battling darkness with modular 500–1500 watt wind systems
The modular pico-wind-energy system from the Berlin based company MOWEA was the overall winner of the electronica Fast Forward Award 2016 staged by Elektor. The wind turbines are designed to plug into existing off-grid solar systems to provide additional electricity. MOWEA's system differentiates itself from competitors in three ways: low cost, easy installation and scalability. The modular system can scale from 500 watts to 1.5 kilowatts by installing up to three turbines.
