Innovations for the solar future

One of the more exciting things about solar technology are its possibilities. Yes, the industry is suffering under the recent and radical changes in government policy but it’s important to look and plan ahead, trying to see what is on the horizon that has a chance of going mainstream and succeeding !

I’ll be blogging some ideas with links for you to explore should you wish.

Here’s the first one !

How about this new shelter – would look in great in our City Centre!

The Lotus Leaf  is an urban design shelter with seats and integrated photovoltaic panels, perfect for green parks and parking areas. It can shelter you from the rain and when sunny produce power ranging from 500W  to 2.8KW depending on the model!

The same company also do a very cool looking pedal assisted electric cycle and a floor lamp called Octopus.
