The smartest renewable rooftop system in the world?

Renewable rooftop power will play a vital role in the decentralised community grid systems of the future. Getting every ounce of power out of available rooftop spaces will be key to making that transition a success. Now a Dutch firm has shown us how it can be done, with several large successful REAL-WORLD installations.

Epson PaperLab - Dry Process Paper Recycle In-Office Machine

Epson PaperLab A-8000 - is an in-Office Paper Recycling Machine, considered the best Paper Shredder money can buy. It is also the World First Dry Process Paper Recycle Machine. Printer giant Epson has developed an in-office paper recycling machine, called the PaperLab A-8000, you put waste paper in and then new, bright white printer paper comes out. Epson says Paperlab is capable of generating up to 14 sheets of A4 paper per minute and up to 6,720 sheets per day. That’s 13 reams of paper per day. If the machine was run every day for 50 weeks of the year, it could make 4550 reams of paper and at $4.50 per ream that is an approx $20,475 dollars in savings each year not having to buy new paper.

Manta5 Hydrofoiler XE-1 - World's First Hydrofoil E-Bike

Manta5 Hydrofoiler XE-1 is the world's first water-bike that replicates the cycling experience, on water. The XE-1 all terrain hydrofoil bike can cruise through choppy waters, carve up oceans and relax on the river. The Hydrofoiler has been in production for seven years and went through seven prototypes before Manta5 arrived at the finished product. The carbon-fiber reinforced nylon propeller produces thrust at low speeds and reduces drag at top speed powered by a lithium ion battery that lasts up to an hour of ride time this battery can be easily removed and charged from a standard outlet which takes about five hours an onboard heads-up display shows battery level distance and speed which caps out at 13 miles per hour or 21 kilometers per hour propelled by a 460 watt brushless ebike motor three levels of assistance are available to the rider. You can ride on oceans, rivers and lakes, handling moderate chop and swell. The front tiller section of the Hydrofoiler self-levels and help to punch through chop and over swell as you ride. Bike Material Details: Strengthened carbon fibre which is set with high performance epoxies (front and rear hydrofoils) Aircraft grade TIG welded 606-T6 aluminium (frame) Vacuum formed ASA plastic (buoyancy modules) All fixtures have been designed and made to avoid corrosion. Price = $8,990.00 as of 12/3/22 on their website Thanks for watching. ____________________________________________________________________ CREDIT LINKS ► Manta5 Youtube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsVPj0IR6D7X8J5pmeV8Fiw ► Manta5 Website - https://manta5.com ► LeeZa Shrestha Youtube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoT-5busILCAdb75FxH4v5g ► Water Pedal Tricycle Video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oFg9vHbbjTA ____________________________________________________________________ 🔔 🔔 WONDER WORLD CHANNEL & VIDEO INFORMATION 🔔 🔔 🔵 Wonder World Twitter - https://twitter.com/WonderWorld_YTC ✅ For personal story suggestions or business enquiries about product stories / reviews, please contact me on my email from the ABOUT page.

We must use our farmland efficiently in order to feed everyone, and one solution is to employ autonomous robots. One of these robots is an "intelligent sharpshooter" that can distinguish crops from weeds — and then it shoots them with the appropriate treatment. Because of such high precision, the robot uses 95% less chemicals than traditional sprayers. The robot also scans the entire farm and is able to geolocate each plant accurately within centimeters.

The secret lab making the most sustainable food in the world | Just Might Work by Freethink

The secret lab making the most sustainable food in the world | Pasi Vainikka | Solar Foods Subscribe to Freethink on YouTube ►► https://freeth.ink/youtube-subscribe Up next ►► The Futuristic Farms That Will Feed the World | Freethink | Future of Food https://youtu.be/KfB2sx9uCkI Solar Foods is a startup making food out of thin air. While we currently produce more than enough food to feed the world — making hunger, maddeningly, a problem of access, not abundance — that abundance comes at a steep environmental cost. As plant-based alternatives to meat are growing in popularity and market share, their production still requires large-scale agricultural processes. And while growing crops has a smaller carbon footprint than raising animals, that does not mean it accounts for nothing. Solar Foods believes the answer to a more sustainable food source is to not count on better agricultural practices or consuming less animal products — or the entire field of food production at all. To create this new, sustainable food source, Solar Foods has created a novel form of food — a protein made from single-cell organisms called Solein. Needing primarily electricity and water, single-cell proteins can potentially be grown in the harshest of Earth environments as well. Places where traditional agriculture is difficult to impossible could produce their own sustainable food.

Volkswagen CEO ALL-NEW Sodium-Ion Battery FINALLY Hit The Market

Volkswagen CEO ALL-NEW Sodium-Ion Battery FINALLY Hit The Market

Volkswagen CEO ALL-NEW Sodium-Ion Battery FINALLY Hit The Market In a world of innovative technology, a new development has presented itself in the automotive industry. A sodium battery has been used for the very first time in a Volkswagen car, an incredible milestone that stands to benefit drivers everywhere. This powerful battery is not only long-lasting and more efficient than traditional lithium-ion batteries but also cheaper and better for the environment. How will the sodium battery perform in a real-world setting? Will it be as efficient as lithium-ion batteries? And most importantly, can it deliver the same performance and reliability level we've expected from Volkswagen cars? Let’s dive in! The first mass-produced sodium-ion batteries have found their way into an electric vehicle. The model is part of VolksWagen's joint venture in China called Sehold. It has a sodium ion battery can go 157 miles on a single charge and is much cheaper and safer than lithium batteries. The mass-produced pack, supplied by HiNa Battery and fitted in the Sehol brand's smallest model, the E10X, which is a compact urban electric vehicle with a very reasonable price and excellent range that Volkswagen sells in great quantities in China, is a perfect example. The joint venture was set up in December 2017 and is based in Hefei, the capital city of Anhui province. Volkswagen and JAC each owned 50% of the equity. In May 2020, Volkswagen spent about $ 245 million to increase its share venture stake. Volkswagen's stake in the joint venture increased from 25% to 75% due to the acquisition, making the German carmaker the second foreign manufacturer to control a majority position in a Chinese vehicle production firm after Tesla's fully owned Shanghai facility. Volkswagen Group CEO Herbert Diess said that his business has invested around €1 billion into the JAC partnership. 🔔 Subscribe now with all notifications on! 📺 Watch the entire video for more information! ---------------------------------------------------- Disclaimer Fair Use: 1.
