The design, dubbed PowerWINDows, comes from a team led by Professor Farzad Safaei (Director of UOW’s ICT Research Institute ), and will be built into a prototype by an engineering firm so that further testing can take place, and may eventually be built into a commercially viable version for production. © UOW Safaei stated that he began his research on this project in order to overcome what he sees as weaknesses in current wind ...
