postheadericon Wind turbine

JOWH developed a completely new model (VAWT) high Torque Wind Turbine which achieves competitive performances at low speed wind (2 to 10 m/s). The wind turbine model has been tested and the international patent application was published January 9th 2014.

De-central small electricity production plants become more interesting then large electricity plants out of several reasons: the networks do not become overloaded, smaller plants react faster on local power demands, electricity cables do not need to be replaced with ticker cables, a collapse of a network in a region is only limited to a region and a short period of time, wind and solar energy production can be easier controlled in smaller regions, energy can be stored locally in heat collectors, batteries or to produce hydrogen. This hydrogen can be used for electricity production, for vehicle fuel cells, or to make methan gas.

This new model wind turbine becomes even more interesting in the future when electric cars become more popular and electricity production near houses, offices and on industry parks is urgently required.

The future will give EV car owners the possibility to produce their own electricity to charge their EV at low costs and with 100% renewable energy.
