„Windy Vienna“, is a local proposal of micro wind turbines on Aspernbrücke powered by Vienna’s Danube. These vertical turbines are designed for public participation; people can modify the blades under guided workshops, directly influencing future energy solutions.
The system converts rotational energy into electricity, encouraging members of the public to charge their phones. Transparent sections of the turbine reveal its inner workings, providing a tangible understanding of the energy conversion process. However, the charging time is intentionally restricted to two minutes, prompting users to reflect on their energy usage. It serves as a reminder that energy might not be as infinite as perceived, urging contemplation on whether our challenges lie in energy scarcity or its distribution.
