wind lamp Wind Lamp Harvests Wind Energy to Power Itself, Other Lamps

The Wind Lamp is a concept that could help the environment and natural resources in a number of ways. This green lamp is designed to serve as a street lamp, and it could come in very handy at places with sufficient wind power. The lamp basically consists of LEDs and a wind power generator.

The wind generators harness energy to power the LEDs, and since LEDs themselves are quite energy efficient, they are in a suitable position to effectively use the energy so generated. LEDs in the lamp use the required energy for light, and any excess energy generated can be supplied to neighboring lamps to keep them running.

Designer Kyung Kuk Kim’s concept generates clean power, gets some load off the grid, and probably even manages to do its job well. All those plus points however, come with some negatives as well. This would be one expensive street lamp to install and maintain, and with the resources each lamp would require, it will likely take away more than it provides.
