(VAWT), present technological state, new finding through modelling work and future direction of VAWTs were reviewed. It was observed that VAWT plays a vital role in the present energy crisis. Ones can foresee that human being dwelling in a world with wind turbines and solar panels due to present energy crisis with the non-renewable energy. Wind energy has been identified as a promising renewable option Although the full life cycle accounting shows VAWTs are advantageous on a cost basis or materials basis over horizontal axis wind turbines (HAWTs), Currently the VAWTs do not generate enough electricity due to some challenges which discussed in this paper. Drag driven VAWT (Savonius type), lift driven VAWT (Darrieus type) and hybrid of both (D+S) turbine efficiencies can be increased by adding the deflector system that guides the wind towards the turbine blades. A lot of researches are ongoing at present in this level. From the vast survey of the present technological states of VAWT, it was observed that China is the leading researcher in this field for the past few years while European countries serve their place in this research area. In today’s life the demand on electricity is much higher than that of its production the main objective of our project is to produce electricity by using the force of air created by the moving vehicle in highways. In highways the vehicle suffers a lot to travel in night time because of lightning problem. This problem can be overcome by using the VERTICLE AXIS HIGHWAY WINDMILL (VAHW).This is a new unique method of power generation. In this method the windmill blade is designed in a vertical direction and it is kept at the middle of the highway divider by a series combination. The force in the middle portion is higher than the side of the road .This force will rotate the vertical turbine blade. And this blade transmitted these energy by the meshing of spur gear & pinion arrangement is coupled with the generator and this generator will produce electricity. In our method we have coupled one more generator and we have increased its efficiency.
