ENLIL is a smart vertical axis wind turbine project that transforms highways and BRT Systems into renewable energy sources by using the dynamics of the city.
By placing the smart vertical axis wind turbine on highways, ‘’BRT Systems’’ and other transportation lines as well as high-rise residences, ENLIL will generate energy by using the wind created by the vehicles as well as the natural wind. Besides energy generation, ENLIL will measure the city’s weather conditions such as temperature, humidity, wind by using the built-in sensors and the IOT platform.
The measurements made by ENLIL will be used on the carbon footprint map to provide the comfort of the city and it will also contribute to the safety of the city by providing information to possible earthquakes in Istanbul with the earthquake monitoring station. ENLIL can easily be used in highways as a reference point to the autonomous vehicles in order to manage the traffic. Also, a mobile app will provide information and data about the generated energy and measurements made by ENLIL, to whoever needs it.
