Wind Energy Integration in the Urban
EnvironmentThe WINEUR project
13
WINEUR Partners
  • EC has target use of renewable energy to 12 by
    2010
  • Intelligent Energy Europe ALTENER project
  • European partners
  • Axenne and ADEME (France)
  • IT Power (UK)
  • Horisun and The City of Amsterdam (The
    Netherlands)

14
WINEUR project
  • Start January 2005
  • Finish February 2007
  • What?
  • Technical and economic information on small wind
    turbines
  • Investigating planning and social issues
  • Workshops for local authorities
  • Creation of a European Windy Cities network

15
WINEUR results
  • Wind Energy brief profiles Europe and worldwide
  • Catalogue of European Urban Wind Turbine
    Manufacturers
  • Catalogue Guide
  • Techno-Economic report
  • Grid connection report
  • Website www.urbanwind.org

16
Urban Wind Turbines
17
Wind Energy on Buildings
  • Two main options
  • 1. Small wind turbines mounted on top of
    buildings

18
Wind Energy on Buildings
  • Or
  • 2. Fully building integrated wind energy systems

19
Wind Energy on Buildings
  • New area for wind energy
  • Issues to consider
  • Turbulence
  • Wind speeds may be affected by buildings
  • Vibrations
  • Planning Issues
  • Noise
  • So what are the technologies available?

20
Types - Horizontal
  • Advantages
  • Efficient
  • Proven to work
  • Widely used many examples
  • Most economic produces more energy
  • Many products available UK and abroad
  • Disadvantages
  • Does not cope well with frequently changing wind
    direction
  • Some say visually unappealing
  • More noise

21
Types Vertical
  • Advantages
  • Less noise
  • Wind direction immaterial
  • Less sensitive to turbulent flows
  • Creates fewer vibrations
  • Some say easier to integrate into building
    architecture
  • Disadvantages
  • Comparatively uneconomic produces less energy
  • Fewer models available
  • Fewer working examples

22
Small Wind Turbines
  • Horizontal
  • Vertical
  • In between?

23
Manufacturers - UK
  • Eclectic Energy 0.5kW
  • Windsave 1kW
  • Swift (Renewable Devices) 1.5 kW
  • Proven 0.6, 2.5, 6, 15 kW
  • Iskra 5kW
  • Gazelle 20kW
  • XCO2 6kW
  • Sigen 1kW
  • Ampair 0.6 kW
  • Marlec 0.3 kW

24
Manufacturers - Europe
  • Ecofys 3kW
  • Eoltec 6kW
  • Fortis 0.8, 1.4, 5.6, 10 kW
  • OY Windside 1, 8 kW
  • Ropatec 0.75, 3, 6 kW
  • Tulipower 2.5 kW
  • Turby 2.5 kW
  • Venturi 0.5 kW
  • Windwall 2.9 kW

25
Wind turbine specifications
26
Power
  • Rated power
  • Rated wind speed
  • Cut-in wind speed
  • Cut-out wind speed
  • Maximum wind speed

27
Dimensions
  • Rotor weight
  • Rotor diameter
  • Rotor height
  • Swept area
  • Height of mast

28
Other information
  • Brake system
  • Number of blades
  • Noise levels
  • Lifetime
  • Self-starting
  • Yaw control
  • Upwind or downwind

29
Urban Wind Across Europe
30
Europe
  • Small wind mainly for remote locations
  • Few urban installations or manufacturers
  • Exception The Netherlands at least 7
    manufacturers and many cities interested in
    installations

31
Canada, US, Japan
  • Strong interest in small wind
  • Canada - remote applications
  • US - over 20 small wind turbine manufacturers
    mainly remote areas but also some suburban
  • Japan many urban projects and products

32
Workshops coming up
  • Economic aspects
  • Technology installation costs cost per kW
    installed
  • Factors affecting the economics of small wind
    turbines
  • Potential future evolution of the costs
  • Grid connection aspects
  • Standards and regulations
  • Metering arrangements
  • DNO perceptions of microgeneration
  • Tips on choosing a site for an urban wind turbine
