Wind turbines repurposed into bike sheds in Denmark

In a great example of re-use, green energy infrastructure in the form of retired wind turbine blades have gone on to provide green transport infrastructure as bicycle storage sheds.

TheMAYOR.eu reports on this creative solution to a large recycling problem. With nearly half of the country’s energy coming from wind power, and the nation being committed to environmentally friendly policy at various levels, using decommissioned turbine blades in this way is a great fit and inspiration for other organisations and leaders. The curved, sweeping shape requires minimal augmentation before it can be put into action shielding bicycles from the elements.

The innovation was created by Siemens Gamesa, who wrote on Facebook: “Granted, making blades into bike sheds is a small-scale solution, but we believe that every blade that is reused is a valid recycling opportunity.”
