Researchers develop flags that generate energy from wind and sun

Scientists have created flags that can generate electrical energy using wind and solar power. Credit: Dr. Mostafa Nabawy, The University of Manchester The novel wind and solar energy-harvesting flags have been developed using flexible piezoelectric strips and flexible photovoltaic cells. Piezoelectric strips allow the flag to generate power through movement, whilst the photovoltaics is the best known method of harnessing
