German architect André Broessel, of Rawlemon's spherical sun-tracking solar energy-generating globe — It concentrates sunlight/moonlight up to times-solar harvesting capabilities 35 percent more efficient than conventional dual-axis photovoltaic designs.
Eco shocker: Turbine Light concept uses wind to light highways Ingenious, eco-friendly concepts are all around us, there's no denying that. This one caught our eye because it's pretty innovative, seemingly well thought out, and good looking to boot. The Turbine Light concept harnesses the power of the wind from cars rushing past to light up the ever-darkening roadways.
The Solar Pool Heating Rings - Hammacher Schlemmer - These are the floating rings that harness the power of sunlight to raise the temperature of an average-sized pool by - F per week. They require less effort to maneuver and store than traditional ta
Bridges and wind turbines seem to be a match made in heaven; bridges are generally quite tall where wind speeds are much higher and are often in exposed mountainous areas where significant winds develop. This is a 'future bridge' in every sense of the word, designed with solar panels embedded in the road surface that would provide 11.2 million kWh per year. Also, the wind turbines can provide 36 million kWh per year to produce, in total, enough energy to power 15,000 homes.
