Pico turbine pilot to supply a family home in Portugal with sustainable energy

Pico turbine pilot to supply a family home in Portugal with sustainable energy

We've just added details from another REDAWN pilot site, which has been developed in joint association with IST-Lisboa and IG Energy.

This demonstration site explores an adapted pico Pelton turbine that uses a Tungsten mine reservoir to produce hydropower to supply a family home in Hídrica do Seixoso – Portugal.

Although it is still being tested, on average this unit produces around 1000 kWh energy per month, providing a sustainable alternative to grid energy.
