By Christopher Arcus, Automotive X Prize Competitor, Design Engineer, Dedicated CleanTechnica Reader

Tesla competitors are scrambling to get an electric vehicle in the market to compete in the luxury/sport segment. None have succeeded so far overall. Musk is an overachiever. He's not perfect, but he is every bit as obsessively driven and a pioneering visionary as Steve Jobs. It shows. Nobody

Each unit has its cables and generators sealed within its steel housing, and they can be either connected to public power grids or generate electricity for specific buildings or complexes. Also, according to Serious Wonder, the turbines are designed with birds in mind, since a lot of them get killed by conventional turbines. The electricity generated will likely be enough to power LED street lamps as well as charging stations for electric cars. In the future, this technology can be combined with other energy harvesters such as solar panels and so on. Several Wind Trees are scheduled to be installed in Paris this March as part of a test.

Renewable Energy Boosted By Shift From Green Idealism To "Hard Economics"

In addition, HSBC said China was moving its energy mix away from coal to improve air quality. In the US, 30 states have mandated targets known as Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS), and EU policy is currently driven by the 20/20/20 climate and energy package (which targets 20% of renewables as part of the total energy mix by 2020).

HSBC says the deployment of renewables is being helped by reduced technology costs, and more funding sources as  the risks around renewables being better understood by investors and return criteria have fallen.
Ecaterina-Adelina Cocora's insight:

Romania is still a country with very good yield from investments in renewable energy. Decameron can offer information and assistance. Also Romania is ready to assimilate innovative technologies.
