In Germany, the rate of construction of new wind turbines has slowed dramatically - which could have fatal consequences for the energy transition. One of the reasons that new turbines face opposition is that the giant blades endanger near-flying birds. BirdVision is tackling the problem with the help of AI.
Higher, more efficient and definitely more mobile - students at the ETH Zurich are breaking new ground with a special airborne device for harvesting energy from the wind.
What do you need to build a wind turbine? Bits of an old printer, plastic buckets or bowls - and wind of course. Armed with enough innovation to impress even MacGyver, a professor in Vietnam has come up with an idea that has changed the lives of an entire village.
