Entrepreneurship and innovation are critical to the development of any industrial sector. Renewable energy is no different. There are innovators, entrepreneurs and early adopters. Thinking of entrepreneurship in clean tech the first names that we recognise are probably Elon Musk, Solarcity or even Selco Solar (if you are in India). But in this post I would like to introduce Lucien Gambarota, a HK based Italian entrepreneur who started building wind and wave power turbines in his spare time while working in a toy factory. Gambarota started his clean tech venture motor wave group in Hong-Kong by building turbines to harness wave energy.
The need to harness clean energy in the urban landscapes he started building new wind turbines that could be installed on small rooftops and still generate power. Recently he has launched a wind turbine that he calls a typhoon turbine that is capable of harnessing wind energy during typhoons. He has tested them even while driving his car on top speed. To know more about Lucien and learn about his products, you could watch these two videos on youtube. The start of motorwave Looking at the future Picture courtesy:Motorwave group.
