Mr. Jiang Qian from China and Mr. Alessandro Leonetti Luparini from Italy have created the T-Box. The invention, which would be installed between railroad ties and be partially underground, captures the wind of passing trains. This causes the turbine in the box to produce electricity.
According to Mr. Jiang and Mr. Luparini, 150 of the T-Boxes could be placed on one kilometer of track for railways or subways. The electricity made could possibly be provided for facilities or underserved areas nearby.
What a fantastic innovation, Mr. Jiang Qian and Mr. Alessandro Leonetti Luparini! May more such advancements help to ensure greener and cleaner energy for all.http://news.discovery.com/tech/device-harnesses-wind-power-from-passing-trains-110404.html http://www.infoniac.com/environment/t-box-device-harnesses-wind-from-passing-trains-to-produce-electricity.html
