The rising cost of energy and emissions associated with energy production from fossil fuels has forced conventional architects to think about building new generation will be able to supply energy for themselves using renewable energy sources, the British architects David Arnold and Alexa Ratzlaff believe the roof of a skyscraper is an ideal place to harness wind energy to supply the building.
The architects have designed a mega-spiral structure that uses this form to generate electricity, functioning as a giant wind turbine, and hence the name “Tower of the Wind”, its structure is aerodynamically designed to make efficient use of current prevailing wind.
In the center of the tower are the main circulation area and storage, around the nucleus are sections to suit a variety of areas, including commercial, residential, institutional and recreational.
The ceiling of this account is sustainable tower 45m vertical wind turbine will generate enough energy to supply 2,000 homes.
Electric vehicle with lithium batteries do not emit CO2, provided that electricity comes from renewables such as wind, solar photovoltaic and solar thermal or thermal. Wind turbines can supply electricity to electric vehicles, which in future will also serve to store and regulate the electricity intermittent wind energy sector.
