Wind Energy


Throughout history, communities have harnessed the power of the wind. Now, driven by the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and secure home-grown energy supplies, wind energy is the world's fastest growing renewable energy type.

Wind energy already makes a significant contribution across many European countries. The United Kingdom generated an output of 15.5TWh in 2011 — equivalent to the annual electricity demand of 4.7 million homes.


Residential Homes, Farms and Rural Areas


Wind turbines can provide a significant contribution to energy requirements as part of an integrated solution. Combinations of bio-mass, wind and solar based energy solutions, particularly on Swedish climate, enable flexible renewable and sustainable solutions.


Small wind turbines, from 200W to 2Kw have blade diameters from 1.2m across. With simple installation, energy storage via deep-cycle batteries creates additional capacity reducing the household dependency on the grid.


Wind Turbines


Wind turbines are traditionally located onshore, and are increasingly installed offshore. Wind energy installations range from large commercial wind farms to smaller developments, ideal for generating power for a household, farm or local community.


Energy for Communities


A single 2.5MW wind turbine can generate enough electricity to meet the annual needs of over 1,400 households, make 230 million cups of tea, or run the average computer for well over 2,000 years.

The benefits of wind turbines

at Home or in Businesses

Reduce your electricity costs


Wind is free! So, once you have paid the initial installation your electricity costs will be reduced.

Store electricity for a calm day


You can store excess electricity in batteries and use it when there is no wind. Energy storage creates greater self-reliance and resilience.

Cut your carbon footprint


Wind electricity is green, renewable energy and doesn't release any harmful carbon dioxide or other pollutants.

Costs


The cost of a system will depend on the size and the mounting method: building-mounted turbines cost less to install than pole or tower mounted ones. Small systems can start from as little as 10,000 SEK

The "Alpha-Neighbour" Program 2014-2020


ISSS have initiated the "Alpha-Neighbour" program in 2014, helping to create awareness of renewable energy solutions, energy efficiency, consumption and  waste recycling. Read More
