Anand Mahindra requests Nitin Gadkari to install this 'ingenious' technology in India: Watch

Industrialist Anand Mahindra is often seen pushing innovative solutions to climate change and global warming issues. Now, the industrialist after getting inspired from the Istanbul Technical University has shared an idea that can produce electricity from traffic. The Mahindra Group chairman referred to a system in which turbines are installed in the middle of a road to generate electricity by turning the wind created by moving vehicles into energy. Mahindra posted a video on his Twitter handle, showing the new technology in action in Istanbul. Considering India's traffic, the billionaire said if we employ this technology, we can become a global force in wind energy. He also tagged Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways, asking if these can be deployed on our highways.
