Wind helps charging mobile phones

Thanks to the project WKA-BIOROT and a 600-W conventional wind turbine on the roof of Building 5, students and staff can charge their mobile phones on campus. The generated wind energy is stored in a battery bank in the ground floor, and is connected to a smartphone charging station in the entrance hall of Building 5. This charging station is available without cost for all HSRW students and staffs. The project is led by Prof. Dr-Ing. Joachim Gebel (right) and conducted by Md Sawkat Hossain, M.Sc. (left).
