Air Flow / wind power generation

Air Flow
Air Flow

Air Flow is a wind turbine generation unit inside cities and equipped directly on buildings. This project is aiming to build an effective energy conversion system by combining the chimney effect and urban heat island effect. Using the difference in atmospheric pressure and temperature to speed up the flow go through the units. By connecting the units outside the building existing in cities, it uses the construction’s height to gain a difference in air pressure and capture winds from various directions in the downtown area. All in all, this concept is aimed to provide a possibility of efficient usage of air circulation and air turbulence.
