-Director of Global Sustainability
WHAT?
Optimizes angle of solar array for maximum energy collection
IMPACT
IMAGINE
1. SkyTran
As you ride down the avenue,
more passengers are loaded.
A monorail in Manhattan with riders
waiting at a stop.
There is a station every 10 minutes, creating a continuous network of cars all over Manhattan.
“I’m going to Central Park” –
the network will route you there.
IMPACT
Sun
Saluter
Global Scalability of Solar
Maximizing Efficiency
HOW?
Under $1 per watt
Uses a tracker, motors to optimize the angle of solar array
Global
Scalability
of Solar
Qbotix
4. Driverless Cars
WHAT?
IMPACT
Google Claims:
Will reduce traffic accidents by 90%
Will reduce commute time and energy by 90%
Will save 4.8 billion hours in driving
Will save 1.9 billion gallons of fuel a year
Will enable pay-per-mile: the cost per trip-mile could be reduced by 80%
Worldwide social and economic benefits
HOW?

Lack of fluid technology transfer between developing and developed countries.
“Disguised Protectionism” vs. Intellectual property concerns
Government status quo
Concerns about the bankability of new technologies
Barriers to realizing the potential of global, scalable green technologies:
My Top GreenTech Concepts
Jennifer Schwab, Sierra Club Green Home
Cost premium is $10 per panel
Uses 40% fewer panels
"Helper" made from recycled materials and bamboo
3.
5. Solar Roadways
WHAT?
IMPACT

Pays for itself
Generates clean renewable energy
Recharges electric vehicles
Creates safer driving conditions
Provides and integrates data
Worldwide social and economic benefits
HOW?
Build, rebuild, or cover roads with smart solar road panels
Start small—at home, in business parking lots

Realize benefits

Extend to larger public areas
6. Waste to Energy
WHAT?
IMPACT
HOW?


1. Plasma arc gasification for municipal solid waste:
-Turning garbage into fuel and electricity

2. High heat moisture evaporation for natural waste:
-Turning sludge, animal waste, and other agricultural
waste products into biofuel, water, and ash
Converting waste to energy through:
Energy
Gasification:
The Waste-to-Energy Solution
Sludge Energy
Recuperation Transformer (SERT)
Waste
HOW?
Gasification
E.P.A. scientists concluded: It is the most environmentally friendly destination for urban waste that cannot be recycled
Yields fuel and electricity
Curbs local pollution and landfill overflow
Reduces greenhouse gas emissions
SERT
Produces bio-fuel
Recovers and sterilizes water from sludge
Generates heat that is usable and/or recoverable
Creates sterile ash suitable for construction uses or as a nutritional supplement to agricultural feed
7. Corning "Day of Glass"
WHAT?
IMPACT
People stay connected anywhere, anytime and with great ease

Human energy efficiency optimization
HOW?
A futuristic world where ordinary surfaces transform into sophisticated electronic devices that provide extraordinary efficiencies in our daily lives

Stay connected through seamless delivery of real-time information - whether you're working, shopping, eating, or relaxing.
By utilizing:
complex electronic circuits
massive bandwidth
nano-functionality
eco-friendly, laser thin glass
8. Global Tap
WHAT?
IMPACT
Accessibility to clean drinking water across the world

Affordable or free of charge

Reasserting that access to water is a
human right
HOW?
Develop a tap fund
Fund will provide financing for tap
installations, distribution, and maintenance
Provide water at a free or reduced charge
Public-private partnerships
Global Tap installs taps across the world in schools, public locations, and unprivileged communities.
Global Tap believes that water is a fundamental
human right.
9. Google Glasses
WHAT?
IMPACT
Hands-free functionality lets the user capture photos and video and complete other tasks
Seamlessly integrates virtual information with what a person sees in the real world
Get social calendar reminders, map directions, and data galore in your field of view
HOW?
Augmented-reality
glasses rumored to cost around $1,500.
Device sits on the wearer's ears and covers one eye with a translucent rectangle -- about the size of a postage stamp
Transmits data about the wearer's surroundings directly into his or her eye
In lieu of a touchscreen, swiping motions made on the side of the headset can navigate app interfaces
You have to see to believe – just watch the video…
10. Tata Power Solar:
Enabling Solar Everywhere
WHAT?
IMPACT
Agents of social change

Tough, long lasting, cost effective and energy efficient

Designed for isolated, rugged areas
HOW?

11. Natural Refrigerants
IMPACT
Many natural refrigerants are inexpensive, some less expensive than HFCs
Energy efficient technologies, with some up to 40% more energy efficient than HFCs
Allows developing countries to increase productivity with minimal impact on the environment
WHAT?
HOW?
Naturally occurring substances, such as hydrocarbons (propane, iso-butane), CO2, ammonia, water and air.
Economic and Social Benefits
Greenpeace’s GreenFreeze®
Greenpeace's GreenFreeze® (hydrocarbon) technology has spread extensively throughout Europe, Japan, Russia and China

It is currently the refrigerant of choice in 300 million household refrigerators worldwide
WHY?
These substances can be used as cooling agents in refrigerators and air conditioners, don't harm the ozone layer, and have no or negligible climate impact.
It is still
illegal
to sell or to purchase GreenFreeze® in the United States and Canada



Greenpeace is currently working to change this situation through a variety of avenues:
policy changes
corporate engagement
market development for manufacturers
