Designers Nicola Delon, Julien Choppin and Raphael Menard were faced with the issue of how to make wind power a more practical form of energy.

The result was Wind-it, an electrical tower/wind turbine hybrid. What is great about the design is that the wind turbine fits within already existing electrical towers, essentially removing the debate about where best to locate wind turbines.

The design just won the Next Generation design competition for its advanced thinking yet great simplicity. The Wind-it seems like the best of both worlds!
