The main purpose of this project is to capture the jet blast produced by aircraft. This shall be used to harness kinetic energy that will be transformed into electrical energy. The concept of this proposal is to use a series of wind turbines at the end of the runways of airports to capture wind energy. The wind turbines use a specialized design, with a smaller height than the traditional wind turbines to adhere to the FAA regulations.
