compost

This giant mechanical stomach can turn food waste into energy

A new green initiative is seeing tonnes of food scraps converted to green energy.

This solar pavement is made for outdoor applications

Operating at safe low voltages, the pavement could be used in urban environments, homes, office buildings, shopping malls, and public infrastructure projects.

solar bench

Solar panel bench with built-in phone chargers

In addition, these smart benches can also be equipped with fast 4G internet and air quality sensors.

Waterotor

This small hydropower plant works even in slow water currents

The plant is able to convert over 50% of the available energy in water currents as slow as 2 mph, and could thus be used in almost any river, canal, or ocean current.

damless hydropower plant

These damless hydropower plants don’t harm the environment

Compared with a solar panel array of equivalent capacity, this dam will generate 8 times more energy using only 6% of the space.

This wind turbine harnesses the power of traffic

The wind turbines generate electricity from the massive, untapped energy of moving vehicles.

This tree-shaped wind turbine is made for urban areas

It can provide energy for 100 m2 of office space, 15 street lamps or 83% of an average household's consumption (excluding heating).

Pavegen

These floor tiles harvest the kinetic energy from human footsteps

The technology is discreetly integrated into the existing environment and could be used to power things like lighting, wayfinding and advertisement boards.

Lampposts in London recharge electric cars

The project utilizes existing infrastructure for EV charge points, creating a network that can cover the expected 8,000 EVs in Westminster by 2025.
