[Video] TED Talk: Justin Hall-Tipping “Freeing Energy from the Grid”

4 Jan

Here’s another amazing TED talk from Justin Hall-Tipping. They have solar technology that can be captured in glass surfaces… ie every building in the city could be producing it’s own energy – and transmitting any excess energy to other buildings or back onto the grid.

 

Energy and power continue to be massive influences on everything that happens in this world.  Have you seen anything else that could help replace fossil fuels?  Please post it in the comments below.
