That’s precisely what scientists from the University of Liverpool did when they upped human ingenuity a notch (or more!) by upgrading an everyday wind turbine with a new set of spinning solar blades.

Their design doubles the functionality of traditional wind turbines by incorporating photovoltaic technology. This innovative solution was conceived to silence critics who believe wind turbines are ‘only useful when the wind is blowing’.

Well … this ingenious invention has set in motion the transformation of the world’s renewable energy needs!
