Today the energy that costs the cheapest to produce is solar energy. But the problem for the use of solar is that it is intermittent. To smooth the production of a solar power plant over 24 hours, it is necessary to store the electricity produced during the day to satisfy the needs during the night. Classic Solution: Batteries that are costly and should be recycled at the end of life. Known Alternative: Flywheels in steel or composite materials that are cylinders that rotate and transform solar energy into kinetic energy. The VOSS for solar storage wheel or perpetual battery is a new type of steering wheel with compressed concrete, which would withstand centrifugal force: which is a less costly solution to store energy…

In the heart of the United Arab Emirates, the Masdar city project is taking root. This model city project is based on energy transition and sustainable development. At the time of construction launch, it was planned that the city would welcome 52 000 inhabitants, 40 000 workers and 1 500 companies. 10 years later, no more than 100 in
Qu’il est bon de se promener au bord de l’eau ! Dorénavant certains pourront même y vivre. Comment ? Grâce au projet innovant mis en place en août 2017 à Strasbourg : le tout premier houseboat conçu par Boathome directement inspiré du quartier flottant d’Ijburg aux Pays-Bas.
Piezoelectricity is the ability of some materials to generate electricity when some pressure is applied on them. Converting this capacity into a green technology by harvesting human’s activity could lead to majors progresses in our global commitment toward a reduction of our greenhouse gaz emissions. Imagine a world where your movement would be a source of energy.
