Renewable Energy Wind Turbines are a system that converts wind energy into other types of energy.
It uses wind energy to make mechanical energy for turning its blades which in turn assist to produce electrical energy.
Renewable Energy Wind Turbines are a very useful machine in times of energy shortage or even to be able to generate power in isolated locations and to save the cost and disruption of having a power source installed by a professional fitter in a remote location of your choice.
An Israeli company, Innowattech Ltd., in cooperation with Israel National Roads Company, has recently tested the IPEG™ (Innowattech Piezoelectric Generator) system in the first of its kind pilot project along a ten-meter stretch of highway in Israel. The technology developed by Innowattech in association with Technion IIT (Israel Institute of Technology) is based on piezoelectric materials that enable conversion of mechanical energy exerted by the weight of passing vehicles into electrical energy. One kilometer of Innowattech’s generators along a single lane is capable of producing an average of 200 KWh per hour, sufficient electricity to provide for the average consumption in 200-300 households provided approximately 600 heavy trucks or buses travel through the interval per hour on average. The harvested electricity may be supplied to various road-side applications, such as traffic lights, billboards, enforcement cameras, signs, etc., as well as transferred into the electric grid. The technology may also be used for road data collection (Smart Road). The technology does not increase the vehicles’ fuel intake or affect the road infrastructure. It is not affected by weather conditions and allows electricity to be harvested near the end consumer. Innowattech has also developed the technology for harvesting energy from movement of trains, airplanes and pedestrians, to be tested within months to come.
