Coming To Paris Soon!

What a strange sight! It's like a tree with little plastic spinning leaves. What on earth is it for?

It's for producing energy! The Wind Tree is made up of a steel trunk and mini turbines. It's designed to harness energy from even the slightest of breezes, so it's producing energy even on days with very low wind.

From the French start up "New Wind", these silent and powerful windmills should appeal to those who oppose the size and noise of traditional turbines.

They stand 11 meters tall, and are designed to fit into the urban environment.

One will be placed in Paris, right on the Champs- Elysees!
