…is innovative green energy projects. Beyond traditional wind, solar, tidal and geothermal, I like looking at far more bleeding edge tech:
- Solar roadways: started in Idaho, but should cover all currently paved surfaces exposed to the sun. Shouldn’t every driveway, sidewalk, and road generate electricity for us, just because? Platio has a solar paving system as well.
- Kinetic energy: when people walk on sidewalks or floors in shopping malls [like mall-walkers], shouldn’t we not waste the energy created by the actual walking? Pavegen makes one. Here are some more.
- How about making energy from another thing that happens every day, water moving downhill in city pipes.
Let’s make 2018 a year where we smash open our infrastructure to make it generate electricity for us, just because.
