The goal of becoming Energy efficient maybe the mother of invention so to speak and with the growing number of cars globally and many cities around the world lighting up the streets and highways this increases our energy usage.

With this increased carbon foot print becoming every more problematic solutions are now sort within this growing industry of renewable energy.

The basic idea is that a passing car or truck which is burning gas as it travels moves the turbine with the wind turbulence created and therefore the turbine moves and creates electrical energy to power the street lights.

This has been created by TAK Studio (United States of America) comes as one of the latest innovation in green roadways–the attractive Turbine Light and is showcased at the Greener Gadgets Design Competition.

These wind-powered lights would line up the streets and highways and illuminate when cars pass by them.  IF enough energy is generated by the passing cars, the lights will shine the path to your destination.  Problem is, and a big IF in this model.  There is the possible problem that this would promote faster driving?

It would make sense for something like this to be installed in windy cities that already generate enough energy for illumination. For all the rest, what about solar powered lights ?

The Turbine Light is an entrant in the Greener Gadgets Competition check out all the amazing entries. The Greener Gadget Conference took place in New York City on February 25th, 2010.
