KAPEG CURRENT PROJECT - Knowledge sharing workshops (Hands-on and theoretical) and installation of demonstration site for locally constructed small wind turbines

Project's aim

This project aims to increase technical knowledge of small wind turbines by creating a free online resource and mutual learning opportunities

Local manufacturers of small wind turbines face a number of challenges in terms of manufacture, installation and design when following standard turbine designs. In many cases, certain materials (such as permanent magnets) are not available in the standard sizes or parts need to be adapted to the specific site to ensure the adequate exploitation of the wind potential.

Therefore, the exchange aims to strengthen the capacities of local organisations working with renewable energy technologies by introducing small wind energy applications from the point of design and manufacture to installation and maintenance on a global level.

The specific aims of the exchange activities are:

    • To increase the technical knowledge base of small wind turbine (SWT) designers, manufacturers and installers and help them overcome material supply issues.
    • To create public and free online resources for the design and installation of locally manufactured SWT, to be used by practitioners of the Wind Empowerment network and others.
    • To promote knowledge sharing and mutual learning between organisations operating in Nepal on SWT design, installation and maintenance through practical applications.

Tools already designed by the Rural Electrification Research Group (RurERG) of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) will be made available online as open source tools. 

Following this, a workshop will take place in Kathmandu, Nepal, where a pilot SWT will be designed and installed in a rural community. For global promotion and dissemination, webinars and networking events will be organised.

KAPEG says goodbye to EWB placement Brad Schultz and his wife Diana

posted Jan 25, 2011, 6:32 PM by Sahas Bikram Shah   [ updated Jan 25, 2011, 7:20 PM ]

For the last 5 months, Brad and Diana have been living and working in Dhulikhel.  Brad was placed at KAPEG through a project set up jointly by KAPEG and Engineers Without Borders Australia

The original project Brad came to KAPEG to take part in was to assist KAPEG staff with the design and commercialization of some LED lighting products.  The results of this project can be seen on KAPEG's LED Product page.  In addition to this, Brad contributed in many other ways including setting up this website for KAPEG, contributing to the IT workings of KAPEG, developing an energy audit process for KAPEG and trialing this at a local hotel, conducting research on the use of super capacitors as energy storage for remote wind energy systems and presenting this at the International workshop run by KAPEG and generally assisting with KAPEG's other projects and its day to day operation and management.

Brad plans to have continued involvement with KAPEG and Nepal in the future through remotely supporting the further development, marketing and selling of the LED lighting products as well as working on other projects.

Diana made contributions to KAPEG through her graphic design skills and her valued assistance at the International workshop in Pokhara.  She also spent time helping out at a local orphanage as well continuing her studies in Graphic Design.

Brad made these comments about their experience:

"Living and working in Nepal has been an amazing experience for Diana and myself.  Our 5 months here have flown by so quickly, yet we feel like we have now seen and experienced so much in this part of the world - while hopefully managing to make a positive contribution to it.  We would like to thank the KAPEG team for welcoming us into their lives and look forward to continuing to remain part of the KAPEG team, even though we will be in Australia."

Having Brad and Diana as part of the KAPEG team has been valuable for KAPEG and it's staff.  KAPEG would like to thank Brad and Diana for their efforts, as well as EWB Australia for arranging and funding the placement.  KAPEG also wishes Brad and Diana all the best in the future and looks forward to a strong continued relationship with EWB Australia.
