Green Future

  1. 1. Green Future Part 1 of 2 in Green Future Series
  2. 2. 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.
  3. 3. PaveGen • British company PaveGen has created sidewalk tiles that harvest renewable energy from every footstep.
  4. 4. 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.
  5. 5. 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.
  6. 6. 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.
  7. 7. 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.
  8. 8. 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.
