Purify Water Through Solar Bag While You Walk

Purify Water Through Solar Bag While You Walk

In many parts of the world, access to safe drinking water is a major concern. People often have to walk many miles per day to get water. The problem is, even that water is not always purified before drinking, which often leads to death from water-borne diseases. According to reports, water-borne diseases kill more people in Africa, than war and violence. But, that may be curbed with Solar Bag – an innovative solar water purifier.

Going Green Got Easier With UCLA’s New Flexible Transparent Solar Cells

Going Green Got Easier With UCLA’s New Flexible Transparent Solar Cells

A team of researchers at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) has developed a new transparent solar cell that can generate electricity while allowing people to see through the cells. The cells can be used in windows to generate electricity without compromising the aesthetics. Using transparent solar cells in large buildings will definitely increase the deployment area and will thus increase generated power.

Greenpeace Sceptic About Apple’s Promise Of Going Green Soon

Greenpeace Sceptic About Apple’s Promise Of Going Green Soon

So, how green is Apple? Yes, you guessed it right, we’re not talking about the fruit, it’s about the phenomenal Apple Inc. Back in April, the renowned environmental activist group Greenpeace ranked Apple to be a ‘not very environment friendly tech company’. The technology giant received three Ds and an F in the report card issued by Greenpeace. Last week, the report was revised again on the news of Apple’s plan of using 100% renewable power in it’s new iCloud data center. But, is Greenpeace convinced yet?

NASA Developing Wind-Borne Power System Like Flying A Kite

NASA Developing Wind-Borne Power System Like Flying A Kite

In the childhood, almost everyone loved flying kite. NASA is bringing the childhood memories live again with their new airborne wind power system which incorporates the simplest technology of flying kite. Though it is an under-developing project but the test result of the prototype is very promising. The successful implementation will add a new phase in the evolution of renewable power generation. It will lead us to produce more efficient and sustainable energy.

ES Pipe: Waterwheel – Turns Regular Water Supply Into A Mini Hydroelectric Generator

ES Pipe: Waterwheel – Turns Regular Water Supply Into A Mini Hydroelectric Generator

Now a days many energy efficient technologies are evolving to reduce energy consumption. Today I am going to introduce a new technology which generates electricity through the pipe waterwheel. In the third world countries like in Africa or South-Eastern Asia, this technology is much more useful. There are some areas in these regions where people didn’t have the opportunity to use electricity. This technology is not the solution of grid electricity at all; rather you can use it for low energy consumption devices such as light bulb. As it can store energy in a battery, so only dc electricity will be used.
