What are some creative ways we are trying to collect wind energy?

    Wind farms require a large amount of land to produce a significant amount of energy, and the limitations on resources make creative solutions for wind collection desirable.  One example is the “highway turbine” which was the brainchild of a student at Arizona State University, involving a turbine placed over a freeway, having the ability to produce 9.6 kWh a year due to cars traveling beneath it at 65 to 70 miles per hour (see the link below for a visual).  Another example is a “wind sail” resembling the sail of a sailboat installed on a cliff near Lake Ladoga in Russia.
