stream / air stream energy generation

stream
stream

Stream is a method converting air stream, produced by driving cars, into energy. The technique behind it achieves that the air stream leads to movement of the system, which in turn is attached laterally to the road. Each of the system’s elements is coated by a piezo-electric foil, which stretches when it is moved and generates electric energy. The wavy movement of the elements underlies the fin ray effect. As cars pass these elements, the impression of a bow wave is conveyed. All in all, Stream converts air stream reliable to usable energy and enhances the aesthetic sense in the range of regenerative energy usage.
