    • Green Future Part 1 of 2 in Green Future Series
    • Innovation is Here! • In order to combat the world’s more problematic environmental issues, scientists, researchers, and architects have been coming up with exciting and innovating fixes.
    • PaveGen • British company PaveGen has created sidewalk tiles that harvest renewable energy from every footstep.
    • Sidewalks = Powerplants • They use a technology, which converts kinetic energy to electricity. • The electricity is stored and later used for things like pedestrian lighting and wayfinding advertising. • This technology is best suited for highly populated urban environments.
    • PaveGen Tiles • Pavegen tiles are made from recycled materials and are designed to withstand harsh weather environments. • It also gives people the chance to interact with renewable energy, making it all the more interesting and fun! • For more information check out Pavegen’s website.
    • Nuclear Waste = Nuclear Power • One major issue scientists are dealing with is what to do with nuclear waste? • An easy solution is to use it to create nuclear power.
    • Nuclear Power • Nuclear power is one of the cleanest energy sources out there. • But the topic raises a lot of concern amongst the public especially after the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster.
    • GE’s PRISM • However, the General Electric’s PRISM recently created a reactor that is carbon-free and can be run on nuclear fuel from water-cooled reactors, basically turning waste into energy. • Find out more about GE’s PRISM check out their website.
