Innovation is when two or more things combine to make something new. Or get rid of something.
Gears, brakes or oil? Not required. A 2.75 metre high turbine can create 100 kilowatts. Silently.
Thanks to its compact design it can be deployed in different sizes in cities or residential areas. A Spanish startup is developing the concept further together with Norway’s state energy company.
In England, meanwhile, a startup will employ the technology in streetlights, using the air displacement created by passing cars to illuminate the streets.
