Known as much for his tweets as for prompt social welfare action triggered by varied posts online, industrialist Anand Mahindra has led to widespread interest after he re-tweeted Erik Solheim’s observation of “ingenious use of wind generated by passing traffic velocity.” The Norwegian diplomat and former minister is a known crusader to preserve Earth’s green cover. His comment was linked to a technology developed by Istanbul Technical University.
Mahindra used the thread to add: “Given India’s traffic, we could become a global force in wind energy! Can we explore using them on our highways, @nitin_gadkari Ji?”
The major goal is to generate electricity in hybrid renewable energy resources using the ENLIL turbine so that it can produce electricity in any windy place. Over time, renewable energy sources have successfully met the majority of electricity demands in Denmark and Norway. As energy demands rise, the Indian government has approved offshore wing plants for power generation. With this example, people may see how far our country needs to progress in order to compete with developed nations. This approach generates power using both wind and solar energy, which is a significant advantage.
The blades are designed with such technology that it also keeps a track of temperature, humidity, carbon footprint, and seismic activity. ENLIL is an early-stage project now but has already gained the Climate LaunchPad Urban Transition Award and the Mercedes Turkish Startup Award.
Are Indian politicians listening?
