Energieweg 05: Dauerleister Wind

Windrad zur Energeigewinnung für die Kesch-Hütte.
Dauerleister Wind
Energy Path 05: Permanent Wind

Description

In the hut, not only energy is needed for cooking and heating. Lights, vacuum cleaners, beer coolers, washing machines, fire detectors and other devices also require energy in the form of electricity. 

The electricity is supplied by the wind turbines installed in the summer of 2011, by the photovoltaic elements in the façade of the hut and on the roof, and by a turbine in the water pipe. The new hut from the year 2000 is so well thought out that the operation of the Kesch hut does not need more electricity than a household of four - and that with around 5000 overnight stays per year! 

But the generation of energy is only the beginning of the solution. It is more difficult to store the energy produced and to meet the fluctuating energy demand. In the audio report, Reto Barblan tells you how the energy is stored and why the wind turbines play a central role in covering the peak consumption. The audio file can be found at the back of the pictures.   

The next interesting place "The First Hut" is at the wooden plaque at the old hut.
