Inspiration:
Birds use their wings to generate lift and thrust for locomotion. The difference in air pressures around the airfoil shaped wings generates lift and thrust. Birds also flap their wings and while flapping they also pitch (rotate) them about a lateral axis.

As apart of our final year project, our team is working to set up vertical axis wind turbines(VAWT) along sides of railway tracks. We intend to utilize the gust of wind produced by trains moving by to move these vertical axis wind turbines and generate electricity.

Solar photovoltaic are gaining popularity in the age for sustainable clean renewable energy source grows louder. It is well known that Sun’s energy on earth is expressed as 1kw/ square meter at AM 1. Many PV technologies have been developed to convert this energy into electrical energy.

INTRODUCTION

A major contributor to global warming is the burning of fossil fuels for various activities. Passenger cars consume billions of gallons of petrol or its derivatives each year to power their internal combustion engines. About 53% of usable energy from the engine goes into overcoming aerodynamic drag.

Water, water everywhere, but not a drop to drink. If you live in drought stricken California, that old saying may ring true. With over 1000 miles of coast California has plenty of that salted variety, but fresh water resources have been taxed to the limit.

As we all know that one of the main pollution which is happening in the world is noise pollution and we know that it is mainly due to the noise made by automobiles due to the horn. This make serious problem in the society.

Why do we turn on the lights when it’s sunny outside? For many of us, artificial light has completely replaced natural light. Lighting can account for up to 50% of building electricity consumption, and up to 56% of energy bills in offices.

Every car does bump while it runs. It is seen more with passenger bus’s back position. We can extract electrical energy from an electric bus. The amount of power that is extracted from it is more than its expenses for running.

NANO LEAVES
Nano leaves convert the visible spectrum of light and also convert invisible light, known as infrared light or radiation. Due to the unique abilities of Nano antenna electromagnetic collectors in these Nano leaves which convert visible and mid-infrared radiation into electricity,

"Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be converted from one form to another"- Albert Einstein.

Humanity has always challenged itself to lead the ongoing race of developing Sustainable Energy Resources,
