Learn more 500Rpm: Argentinian team empowers remote communities to build low-cost open patent wind turbines to generate sustainable, affordable, reliable energy. When Argentinians Esteban Van Dam, an industrial engineer and Luciana Proietti, an anthropologist, encountered Scotsman Hugh Piggott’s open-patent design for a wind turbine, the flames of inspiration were fanned. The duo created 500Rpm, a non-profit organization in Argentina which adapts the Piggott wind turbine design to make low-cost renewable energy accessible in rural areas in the country and the rest of Latin America.
