Our concept lies within the realm of green energy and by our intent we seek a better world where we wouldn’t have to compromise the integrity of our little place in this solar system.

We seek to merge Nano-crystalline solar cells (thin film) with wind turbines, so that we can obtain more energy from a single structure. The rotor blades of the wind turbines are coated with Nano crystal solar cells and the tower is covered with curved solar panels. When photovoltaic cells overheat, they become less efficient. The constant spinning of the rotor blades cools the cells.

The unoccupied space in the tower of the wind turbines can be covered by curved solar panels. Even in non-monsoon seasons, Nano crystal solar cells generates energy by solar radiation. Hence a hybrid power station would create more output from the wind turbine during the winter, whereas during the summer, the solar panels would produce their peak output.

Also by their virtue of compactness and greater power output to space ratio, these turbines can be ideally placed in advanced cities where free space is deficit.
