Eco Factor: Concept wind generator to provide renewable energy.
While cars usually consume generated energy, industrial designer Pedro Gomes has conceptualized a product that can utilize vehicles to generate renewable energy on the highway. Christened the E Turbine, this concept wind energy generation system uses air movement caused by passing cars to produce and store energy.
The produce is designed within a system that not only comprehends the two main products but can also work with street and road lighting, information panels and emergency phones. Placed between lanes, the system generates energy from air movement, which is then transferred to a main battery.
The battery rack, which consists of individual modules, manages the distribution of electricity. In addition to generating electricity from passing cars, the system can also use natural wind for the same result.
