An energy source from technology imitating nature

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter

Summary: The wind! Is one of the unstoppable forces of Mother Nature in earth, and it is known that is one the cleanest sources that can help produce electrical energy for everything. The thing is, the wind is not precisely predictable always… so it can work as anenergy builder for storage. Countries like Denmark use modern technology in windmills that gather energy at all times from the wind, and given the country size, all that storage power can actually feed almost the half of the whole country.

Wind power is part of the future and people in the industry know it.

The Wind Tree

A twenty-six feet artificial tree works as a wind power gathering tool, with leaves turned blades that moves easily with the wind as a natural plant; this project of artificial trees is done to propose alternatives to classical those giant wind turbines that can’t be built in the middle of a street or within a city, but are always spread through natural points where wind goes stronger all time, like shores of beaches and deserts.

Energy source

The eight meters of light tech currently has the capacity to gather around 5mph per 7km-Hours; has 63 blade leaves and was design by the French company called “New Wind” which already placed the first of those trees in Paris last year 2016.

The wonders of this invention are many, but the main issue regarding wind power gathering is the noisy the techs produces for it. These trees are basically silent, giving a sense of real nature they work as a reflection of real trees but obviously giving a futurism touch to the city. The energy it gathers for a whole year (for now) can keep at least around 3 streets well illuminated for a long time (months) and an electric car moving for many miles, as well as the common electrical consuming of a regular family house.

There are several branches to this project around the world, and not only France’s, of course all of them with results that can be combined into one single idea. Another power that the tree can take on is the sound. Yes! It takes common sound pollution of main cities and turn it into a profitable form of energy by capturing vibrations during the day and turn it to an advantage. Kinetic energy has become part of this project too.

With time and more efforts the tree can find its perfect place in our society’s most common landscapes and then see how great is the capacity for gathering in energy. Many experiments has to be done yet but it offers an excellent promise for economizing expenses on electrical energy and others that produces more harm to the earth’s soil instead of coming from clean natural sources without so much industrial procedures involved.

Energy is floating around us closer than we think or can even perceive, the source can be virtually anything but the ideal is yet to be found, and for the momment projects like this can direct us into the right direction, a cleaner and more ecologist future.
