Dutch designer Marjan van Aubel has developed a table that is able to transform sunlight into enough energy to charge your gadgets. The Current Table, as it is called, is capable of performing in this way due to a special process that is very similar to photosynthesis in plants. More specifically, the table is covered by glass panels that contain a dye-synthesized solar cell, which utilizes color properties to generate an electrical current, in much the same way that plants use green chlorophyll to transform sunlight into energy.

Energy Harnessed From Waves Could be on the Horizon

A team of researchers at UC Berkeley is developing a hydraulic seafloor ‘carpet’ that could be used to harvest the energy of ocean waves and convert it to usable clean energy. Since waves are constant, as opposed to sun and wind, this could prove a viable source of carbon-free energy for coastal regions. Wave energy is considered a huge potential source of renewable energy, but the systems for harnessing it are still very underdeveloped. Since there has been a rise in population in coastal cities this form of energy harvesting could prove a great, and, more importantly, clean source of renewable energy.

Clean Water For All With Innovative New Water Pump

proto

The company Pumpmakers has developed an innovative, sustainable water pump, called NSP Solar Pump. Their main aim in developing this water pump was to alleviate the effects of the water crisis in the many areas of the world where people still have no access to clean water. The NSP Solar Pump is a maintenance-free water pump which is fully powered by solar energy, is inexpensive to construct and can be manufactured locally anywhere in the world. Furthermore, the NSP Solar Pump system can also be installed as a replacement for existing water pumps, such as hand pumps, diesel generator-powered pumps, or windmill pumps.
