One of the iconic images for Netherlands is the windmill – and now wind energy is one of the fastest growing forms of sustainable energy production worldwide.
Windchallenge, a spin-off company from the Technical University of Delft, is run by wind-energy specialists Sander and Eline Mertens. They developed a “plug and play” turbine – a new generation of small wind turbines – after four years of research and testing.
The patented Windchallenge 1.7 features blade tilt for better performance and higher reliability. It’s quiet, efficient and affordable, and can be combined with solar panels. Easily transportable, it can be set up on rooftops, lampposts or greenhouses – or for placement as a sustainable energy source for charging station for e-car, e-scooter or eBike.
