The concept solar and wind energy Embryo

The industry is flooded with environmentally friendly concept designs, but often we notice that these designs are either impractical or not cost effective. However, designer Harsha Vardhan’s “Embryo” streetlight concept design looks completely practical and effective. Taking inspiration from a living sprout, he has designed a concept that not only generates energy for itself, but also for other needs. His design harvests solar and wind energy through a single structure. He proposes to install these street lamps on the sideways along the road in rows, much like the present lighting system. The flexible photovoltaic cell on the top of the hood-like roof and an included wind turbine will harness renewable energy that will not only supply power to the lamp itself, but the remaining energy can be stored in a battery contained at the bottom and used for other purposes.

The wind turbine blades are made from carbon fiber enforced plastic and the lamp uses energy-efficient LEDs. The generator lies at the bottom of the structure. We can hope to see a row of such streetlights in the near future, as the concept is quite practical and cost effective.

    I always get very nervous when someone tells me jargon like “cost effective” or “practical”…without clarifying or comparing it to existing technologies.
    is cost effective to you “only quadruple the price!” or something like only 15% more?
    If it is the first, then this technology is useless- a waste of resources that will not be made up by it’s stored energy.
    Usually, such things require backup power anyway, so you wouldn’t save on power cables, and power generation is ALWAYS more effective in large amounts (economies of scale)
    Would harvesting power from the sun-wind be nice?
    Is it green?
    hardly. the effort of excavating all that lead in batteries alone makes far more pollution than conventional methods.

    question: why is no one investing actually VIABLE sources of energy? (E.g. wave powered turbines)

    Good on you dubious man. If everyone had your attitude to new concepts like this then nothing would ever get done. You have to actually come up with a concept to present to the world so that people have the option to purchase in bulk – progressive councils and local government for example.

    The carbon offset that a concept like this would generate would by far cover the negative cost of battery manufacture. Its really good that you have spent the time to properly come up with an intelligent argument for this.

    And your genius suggestion for wave powered energy – really dude, you need to look into the cost of that one as well. There is probably a reason sun and wind power have taken a bit more of a hold?

    Well done on the creator of this concept, I really hope someone takes it up and puts them all up on dubious mans street – just to annoy him.
