In this technological era when the world is endeavoring toward the modern innovations while the energy generation is mainly dependent on the fossil fuels, hydropower, photovoltaic cells, etc. It is for the very first time in Pakistan to integrate two different phenomena for power generation, namely wind and magnetic. The main theme of the project is to operate without fuel and to provide maximum efficiency in comparison to conventional turbines. As the title suggests neo energy (the hybrid solution), it works on the principle of magnetic levitation and wind energy. In order to achieve magnetic levitation, likely pole of magnets in different pairs are mount on circular plates, which is facing each other. These plates mounted on the main shaft of the wind turbine, which produces instability as the turbine moves the output is collected from the DC motor, which is coupled with the main shaft using a pulley. The output can be consumed or stored in DC batteries for later use. This hybrid wind turbine can operate for ten minutes in the absence of wind. Magnet’s type and strength can enhance the operating time if the turbine experiences low or no wind power.
