  • Water from fountains for drinking
  • Water from rivers and lakes for agriculture

An own independent and technically reliable water supply is our vision


Water shortages are increasingly becoming one of the greatest crises of our time.

  • 2 billion people worldwide do not have access to clean drinking water.
  • 70 percent of the water consumed worldwide is used by agriculture; in the least developed countries, the rate is 90 percent.
  • Four billion people worldwide suffer from water shortages for at least one month of the year.
  • Privatization has made water more expensive in many countries.

The construction manual

The construction plans of the KUKATE wind energy converters and the design drawings are tailored to the production engineering know-how available on site. The wind pumps do not require electronic, electrical, pneumatic and hydraulic components, as such are usually expensive and not reliably available.

All construction plans are downloadable free of charge.

A windy idea got wings – we continue to work for this idea

Who we are

Since 2008, the non-profit organization Green Desert e.V. has set itself the task of developing self-sufficient, decentralized and simple technical solutions in the field of water, agricultural and energy infrastructure.

The wind turbine concept KUKATE developed by Prof. Dr. Horst Crome and his working group is ideally suited for projects in the field of self-construction, development aid and vocational training.
