One of the biggest challenges in nature adventures today is not having electricity. In the middle of a forest or on a mountain, it is impossible to have access to electrical networks. Thus, the only alternative is to use accessories that generate energy with natural resources. One of these designs is the mini wind turbine created by the German designer Nils Ferber.
The kit consists of a few pieces that will fit in any bag and can be assembled in a few seconds. The turbine is extremely light and can be installed anywhere.
According to the designer, it can pick up the wind from any direction and with a wind speed greater than 18 km / h, the system produces a constant power output of 5 watts. Via a USB port, electronic devices can be connected directly to the turbine. But it also has a battery that stores what is produced for later use.
This portable turbine is 40% lighter than its competitors.
According to his page on the James Dyson Award, he is looking for partners to develop the turbine and to be able to commercialize it.
