Yes, what if we can use the buses' kinetic energy to drive, among other things, lighting and sliding doors in the bus terminal? In what other places can we then use the same technology to reduce our climate impact in Helsingborg?
That was how the idea of creating a "wind wall" at the long-distance bus terminal at Helsingborg C was born.
The purpose of the wind wall is that we will hopefully reduce both our climate impact and our operating costs. We have been in contact with the supplier who is positive about the idea, which means that we should be able to test the idea and evaluate it to then see if we can scale up with the same method at another location in Helsingborg at a later stage.
Another purpose is that we want to show and inspire others how to do and hope to contribute to more people making similar solutions. Together, we have the opportunity to make a bigger difference in order to reduce climate impact!
The station for the long-distance buses is located towards the sea where there is a completely unobstructed view of Elsinore. There, everything blows most of the time, which is perfect for having a wind wall that is filled with small turbines that generate power for the buses. The inspiration comes from a so-called wind power tree where there are a number of small horizontal turbines that can generate electricity already at 2.5 m / s. The idea is to use similar turbines fixed as a wall at the bus terminal instead.
We plan to take help from Öresundskraft to calculate the effect.
