Title: Micro-wind turbines in urban environments
Subtitle: An assessment

Ref Code: FB17
Authors: 

Abstract1: There is little experience of the operation of small wind turbines mounted on domestic buildings in urban environments and little data on their performance in terms of power generation, service life and maintenance. This study shows that, in addition to the initial embodied carbon and efficiency of the turbine, the payback period is highly sensitive to local wind conditions, transport costs, and the maintenance requirements and service life of the turbine.
