At Number 1: the wind tree. The leaves on this tree consist of 62 vertical windmills. One of the trees can be found in Geneva in front of the office of the Piguet Galland Bank. The tree generates energy at very low wind forces – from around two metres per second. That’s why it’s perfect for the built environment.
