SONEA / Energy generating system

SONEA
SONEA

SONEA(Sonic Energy Absorbing System) is designed to convert noise directly into usable energy. Just as the same as a microphone, SONEA gathers soundwave and converts its energy directly into electric energy. Due to the property of soundwave, it is possible to install multiple systems of SONEA to gather more energy. SONEA can be very effective especially when it is installed in area that produce lots of noise, such as highway walls, airport, subway, and so on. Its convenient module structure helps SONEA to be installed quite easily and quickly, allowing the system to be installed in large quantity.
