Immanuel Dorn is an engineer for regenerative energies concerned with the sustainable use of natural energy sources, especially wind energy, to make human life easier. Since 2016 he has been a member of ERNI e.V. (“Renewable Ideas”), providing self-build workshops for small wind turbines. Self-build projects constructed with one’s own hands foster feelings of agency and a respect for the energy that is used as a matter of course in everyday life. Working on the principle “as high tech as necessary, as low tech as possible”, ERNI e.V. ensures that its systems can be installed with minimal use of machines. The plans on which they are based are inspired by the work of Hugh Piggott.
