1 DEVELOPMENT OF A LESS THAN 5 kw VERTICAL AXIS WIND TURBINE FOR ELECTRICITY GENERATION IN THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT (VENUR) M. DOLORES RIERA, representing TECNIUM Casals Cardona Industrial, S.A.

2 TECNIUM Casals Cardona Industrial, S.A. Founded in 1957 in Manresa (Barcelona), TECNIUM is specialized in the manufacture of capital goods to handle corrosive fluids and equipment and installations for gas treatment. SECTORS RSU/MBT Plants Waste Water T.Plants Potable Water T.P. Desalination Plants Engineering Fertilizers Steel Industry and Surface Treatment Chemical/Fine Chemical/ Pharmaceutical Pulp & Paper Manure Mining Rendering

3 PRODUCTS PLASTIC FANS GAS TREATMENT TECHNOLOGIES MODULAR PLASTIC COVERS PLASTIC PUMPS PLASTIC TANKS INNOVATION TECNIUM also wants to continue to evolve and adapt with investment in research and development. Innovation constitutes the backbone of the company, and VENUR project is a good example.

4 VENUR PROJECT: small and micro wind turbine electricity generation World Wind Energy Association Half Year Report. Ed. WWEA. Bonn (Alemania) (2012). GLOBAL WIND CAPACITY up to 12.4 % in Regarding 2014, the Global Wind Energy Council said it was optimistic that new installations would increase and possibly surpass 2012 levels.

5 VENUR PROJECT: Market Spanish Renewable Energies Plan (PER) Spanish 2020 Objective: 300 MW Spanish small wind energy market: 200 M

6 VENUR PROJECT: Market Global Market Forecast World Wind Energy Association Half Year Report. Ed. WWEA. Bonn (Alemania) (2012). Global 2020 Objective: 3817 MW small wind energy market: 2500 M

7 VENUR PROJECT: Barriers Regulatory: -Real Decreto 1/2012 Ministerio de industria, turismo y comercio. Real Decreto-ley 1/2012, de 27 de enero. Boletín Oficial del Estado, nº 24. Sábado 28 de Enero de Sección I. Página D. M -1/1958- ISSN: X (2012). - Informe 19/2013, de la Comisión Nacional de Energía (CNE) por el que se establece la regulación de las condiciones administrativas, técnicas y económicas de las modalidades de suministro de energía eléctrica con autoconsumo y de producción con autoconsumo. 4 de Setiembre de Technical: WIND RESOURCE IN URBAN ENVIRONMENT: Low velocities, high turbulence. PERFORMANCE: efficiency, mechanical reliability, noise, vibrations, aesthetics. MASS PRODUCTION: to high specific cost. ( /W, vs /W in large wind power plants. CONNECTION TO THE ELECTRICAL NETWORK: power electronics system needs to be improved.

8 VENUR PROJECT: Objective In response to these technological challenges, TECNIUM has identified another opportunity in the renewable energy sector, in particular with regards to vertical axis small wind turbines (VAWT). Therefore, the MAIN OBJECTIVE of the VENUR project is to acquire scientific and technological knowledge to develop new technologies and tools for the design and manufacture of micro-wind turbines for electricity production in urban and peripheral environments. With this project TECNIUM develops a new highly technical product, expanding its product portfolio and, above all, it opens new and very promising markets. This company begins a new phase which is a major industrial challenge with scientific, technological and market very strong bases. TECNIUM Fundació CTM Centre Tecnològic

9 VENUR PROJECT: Specific objectives and Activities 1. TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS OF THE VAWT: - Evaluation of the urban wind resources - Dimensional features - Aerodynamics - In-service Performance 2. MATERIALS SELECTION AND MANUFACTURING PROCESSES: -Conventional materials - Polymers reinforced with natural fibres 3. GLOBAL DESIGN OF THE VAWT 4. CONSTRUCTION OF THE PROTOTYPE, INSTALLATION, TESTS AND VALIDATION Efficiency 5% more efficient Aesthetics Urban architecture Safety, reliability IEC regulations Cost 19% reduction Noise & vibrations <45 db, according IEC Wind regime V nom =7-9 m/s, vs. V nom-cur =10-12 m/s

10 VENUR PROJECT: Economical aspects The overall budget for the project is ,7 EUR, for an execution period of 1 year. The expected NPV is EUR, and the PAY-BACK period is 4,22 years. With the EEA Grant, the NPV can be of EUR, and the PAY-BACK period, of 1,8 years, considering a national market share of 0.083% and an international market share of % by 2020.
