'Team points' are awarded according to the adequacy of the solution with the type of innovations sought by Team for the Planet. They correspond to the analysis of several factors :

  • impact potential: impact average score > 4 => 0,5 point / if > 4,15 => 1 point.
  • global consistency: all average score of the 6 selection criteria > 2,5 => 1 point.
  • the favourite: % of assessments judge the innovation as a top one to act on a global scale against greenhouse gases > 20% => 1 point
  • the targeting: validation of Team for the Planet scope of action higher than 90% => 0,5 point + innovation level of maturity is enough => 0,5 point
  • social acceptability: semantic analysis score of comments > 0 => 0,5 point/ if > 3500 => 1 point
56 assessments

Submitted for assessment : After checking that an innovation is within the scope of the 20 issues Team for the Planet targets and that it has reached a sufficient maturity, the innovation is being assessed.

Detailed project

NB: this form is filled entirely by the ones submitting the innovation.

What is the issue addressed?

From Waste To Wind makes circular wind turbines for rural households and small companies. Current wind turbines create a lot of waste through the use of composites and rare-earth magnets. Also, there are multiple barriers for end-users to get a wind turbine installed.

How is the problem solved?

From Waste To Wind guides the end-user from permission planning to siting, installation and maintenance through 'energy as a service'. After 20 years the entire wind turbine is recycled which is possible because it is made to disassemble and completely circular. No composites are used.

What is the customer target?

Rural households and small companies. For example, eco-BnB's, families that live at the countryside or off-grid.

How is this solution different?

Circular and open-source design.
