Reports have surfaced that the technology company, Apple, has filed a patent for a wind energy storage solution.
Typically for the company that invented the iPod, the turbine will be different to contemporary designs. According to tech blog AppleInsider, the turbine will convert energy into heat storage rather than directly into electricity.
In its patent application, Apple says the new system will convert the rotational energy from the turbine into heat that will be stored in “low heat capacity” liquid.
