Inside the 196-km Delhi Metro, trains carry 2-million passengers daily through 142 stations and each train creates an incredible amount of wind that students at Delhi University are hoping to harness. Ten students from the university have a plan to install a small wind turbine to generate electricity inside the Metro system.
Students hope to generate 200 watts per hour with a single generator, which is no where near the overall power consumption of the system. Nonetheless, this marks and incredible innovation towards finding new ways to generate energy in cities.
Currently, Delhi Metro is in phase III of a major transit overhaul. Once the project is complete by 2020, the Delhi system will be the fourth largest in the world with 420 km of lines.
