Wind and light

Posted in energy by ruthslavid on October 14, 2010

I like the proposal shown in Gizmag for a farm of’ ‘windstalks’ in Abu Dhabi, produced by Atelier DNA in New York. it takes away the potential noise of wind turbines, instead using piezoelectrics to generate electricity from the pressure as teh wands sway in the wind.wind stalk electricity generators

And, as a bonus, they light up at night!
