Hybrid Street Lamp System

Hybrid Street Lamp System with Helix Bamboo Wind Turbines and Solar Panels

2012-13 Projects
Project Timeline: 
05/2013 to 05/2015
Project Progress: 
65%

This project is a hybrid street lamp system using dynamic LED lights powered by a combination of helix bamboo wind turbines and solar panels. Energy harvested from wind and solar during the daytime is stored in a battery to ensure the lighting in the night through an integrated control system. By simulating microstructure features of natural bamboo, innovative carbon fiber composites will be used to fabricate a parallel system.
