NTUA small wind turbine test site at Rafina

The RURERG research group also operates a small wind turbine test site in Rafina, 45 minutes by car from the NTUA. The test site allows for outdoor measurements of the power and energy production of household small wind turbines for grid connected and battery charging applications. The facilities of the test site are in accordance to the IEC international standard 61400-12-1: Power Performance Measurements of electricity producing wind turbines, and specifically of Annex H which refers to small wind turbine testing.

Nea Guinea small wind installations at Marathonas

The Nea Guinea Collective has installed two locally manufactured Hugh Piggott small wind turbines in an eco-community in Marathonas, which is located 1 hour away from NTUA by car. These two turbines are of 2.4m and 3m rotor diameter each and provide energy for an off-grid hybrid wind-solar system for the community’s daily activities.
