CITYSPEEDTURBINE on the Behance Network

CitySpeedTurbineMiniDesignAward Winner 2009Alessandra Rapaccini and James SannaThe project stems from the idea of creating a modular wind turbine can produce energy through the movement of air masses produced by the passage of cars. This system conceived as a sequence of strings can be inserted into various urban settings in a very flexible and environmentally friendly. The energy produced by it will be used to power the LED lights that are located within the arch structure to provide street lighting at night. The mechanical energy generated in the blast generated by vehicles is retrieved by the blades and converted into electricity through a system of generators is then stored by a battery that will distribute the low-energy lighting system. The City speed turbines are a new way of seeing and applying the operation of wind turbines with a design less intrusive and a streamlining of the system-energy lighting for the city.
