Eco-friendly structure Marina Bay make uses of the sunlight in Singapore for the Breeze shelter as it has a sensor under the fan and it only works when there’s someone under it. The energy to power it, is from the solar panel which is free. In our school, the sensor works about the same way, as the toilet light will be switched off automatically after sometime.
The sensor escalator is another way to conserve energy as it will slow down when no one is using the escalator. Thus less energy is needed for the escalator to work when no one is using it. “Eco-friendly” ways can conserve energy, save space and recreation for locals and tourists
