Infographic: ‘Samso: The Energy Self-Sufficient Island’

It took ten years and $80 million, but the Danish island of Samsoe now  produces enough energy to satisfy all its needs and still export 40  percent of its energy to the mainland. Going 100 percent renewable  wasn’t easy, but the results have paid off handsomely. Farmers on the  island who are powering their facilities with wind turbines are seeing a  6 to 7 year payback on those investments. And of course it’s remarkable  that wind, unlike other energy technologies, is entirely compatible  with agriculture.

Beautifully simple design: The plastic bottle lightCut a hole in a developing world roof big enough for a plastic soda bottle to fit snugly into. Fill a bottle with water and a little bleach and set it halfway into the hole cap side up. Voila, you now have a daytime light bulb. The sunshine is diffused by the water in the bottle and kicks off the light equivalent to a 50 watt bulb that costs nothing to run. See how it works.

Hydra-Tesla Research Facility by Milos Vlastic, Vuk Djordjevic, Ana Lazovic, and Milica Stankovic
The Hydra-Tesla research facility is a skyscraper that investigates the possibility of creating a power plant that uses hydrogen as source of energy. With an exoskeleton built from grapheme, the idea for the Hydra skyscraper is to harvest energy from lightning storms via electrolysis and store the power in several mega-batteries located at the base. The project also includes a research facility, housing, and recreational areas for scientists and their families.
