Max’s turbine works by converting wind energy into electrical energy and then stores it in the battery.

This homemade wind turbine can output 11.3 watts of power which is enough enrgy to powere a radio for 30 hours or lighting for 63 hours.

Here is what Max had to say about his amazing project.

‘My dad wanted to do something like this but I beat him to it,’ said Mr Robson.

‘He had the idea of designing a scrap wind turbine but it was my idea to use it in the developing world. I wanted to build something worthwhile and I am interested in design being environmentally friendly.’

‘This isn’t going to change lives in the developing world dramatically but a device like this could make their lives a lot easier,’ he said.

‘It cost me £20 to build the prototype and in the developing world it would be a lot less. The nearest alternative wind turbine on the market costs £2,000.’

According to Max his wind turbine is very easy to build and can be built by unskilled workers.
