Turkey-based ENLİL has developed a smart vertical axis wind turbine that turns highways into renewable energy sources by using the dynamics of the city, while also providing safety to the city, thanks to the built-in sensors that could provide possible warnings for motorists. It can be quickly assembled, while solar panels up top generate power, or to be more specific, 1 kilowatt per hour of electricity. Read more for a video and additional information.


The many sensors include one that measures carbon footprint, earthquake detection, and an Internet of Things platform. This turbine can not only be installed on highways, but in parks, seashores, rooftops, as well as near private residences. The generated energy can either be transported to other places or used for maintenance of roadways.
