Within a couple of years, Hungarian engineers would have made it possible for small businesses to operate their own wind turbines to reduce energy costs.
The project, sponsored by the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, was presented in the newly completed Primer program in association with EIT InnoEnergy Hungary, which promotes energy efficiency projects aimed at sustainability.
The new Hungarian start-up aims to comprehensively expand the technical boundaries surrounding the energy sector and provide easier access to modern-day technologies to support greener SMEs.
“In Hungary, wind conditions are favorable even in lower wind ranges, so self-installed wind turbines could be a realistic addition to solar collectors, enabling small and medium-sized enterprises to secure their energy supply at low cost, high efficiency and long term,” said Lajos Dobai, one of the engineers on the project.
“The prototype has been completed, and we are working on finalizing the technical parameters for easy installation, use and operation, while improving the performance of the structure,” he added.
