The Capture Mobility wind turbines can harness airflow from any direction to capture the wind generated by passing cars and generate electricity.
The turbines each measure just under four feet tall and are topped with an integrated solar panel. Instead of relying on specific environmental conditions, the turbines can be installed along existing roads, where each unit can generate as much as seven kilowatts a day—enough to power an averaged sized home. The Capture Mobility turbines are also equipped with filtering sheets that capture hazardous particles (such as car emissions) in the air.
The Capture Mobility system has already captured the attention of Shell, who have awarded the developer both the Live Wire award and their Let’s Go Trade award.
