This Redesigned Wind Turbine is Highly Functional and Beautifully Designed

Italian clean energy company ENESSERE has designed a new line of smart wind turbines that seek to make turbines a more viable source of clean energy.

A team of engineers, designers and craftsman worked to create a turbine that is not only more efficient, but also gives off a well designed sculptural aesthetic. The Hercules Wind Generator is a vertical axis turbine made from American cedar wood, titanium and carbon that features a sail-inspired design.

Each of these smart wind turbines can also generate enough clean energy to power an average family home for one year. Plans are also underway to equip the turbines with technology that will allow them to predict local weather patterns and to power down during days with low wind activity.
