New smart wind turbine could transform highways into renewable energy sources


A Turkish startup, Enlil, has developed a prototype of a smart vertical axis wind turbine that could transform transportation networks into renewable energy sources. When placed on highways and other networks, the turbines generate power using the wind created by the vehicles moving past them at high speeds. In addition, sensors on the wind turbines could measure their surrounding temperature, humidity, CO2 emissions.
