New innovative solutions, components and tools for the integration of wind energy in urban and peri-urban areas

Challenge: Small wind turbines could make a significant contribution to renewable energy production, but a number of barriers have stood in the way of their widescale uptake.

Solution: The SWIP project developed and validated innovative solutions for small and medium size wind turbines to improve their competitiveness, enabling and facilitating the integration and deployment into urban and peri-urban areas. The project developed three different prototypes, providing scalable solutions for different applications, covering several user needs.

Duration: October 2013 – September 2017
