EverBlade

Discarded wind turbine blades made everlasting

Expanding the use of renewable energy is important, but what happens after renewable products are replaced? By repurposing decommissioned wind turbine blades as bus shelters, EverBlades not only provides a more comfortable experience taking the bus, but also repurposes discarded local wind turbine blades that are currently filling up limited space in landfills. This design is feasible, versatile with minimal waste created, and engages the community into favoring public transportation. The durability and size of wind turbine blades are ideal for everlasting bus shelters: Everblades.
