Transcript of Leapfrog The Old, In With The New
IN WITH THE NEW--
What green technologies
have the potential to
scale in the next
Takes cars off the highway
Helps eliminate congestion
Less investment than subway transportation
What business do you already do electronically?
How could you expand this?
2. Solar Rotators
We educate and empower individuals to understand the basic tenets of sustainability.
What is the
Green Leader® Program?
What Will It Mean To Be A
Catalyze innovation and strategic growth
Increase employee engagement
Improve corporate reputation and good will
Stay ahead of challenging environmental regulations
For Your Company
Understand why a sustainable lifestyle improves health and saves money
Be an example for friends and family
Understand your role in improving the quality of life in your community and country
Provide the education, the experience, and the tools to realize
success through sustainability
"The program provides a strong platform from which to
drive real change
, helping us to understand both the negative impacts and potential liabilities from externalities—and the potential
-Director of Global Sustainability
Optimizes angle of solar array for maximum energy collection
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.
Global Scalability of Solar
Under $1 per watt
Uses a tracker, motors to optimize the angle of solar array
4. Driverless Cars
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
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
5. Solar Roadways
Pays for itself
Generates clean renewable energy
Recharges electric vehicles
Creates safer driving conditions
Provides and integrates data
Worldwide social and economic benefits
Build, rebuild, or cover roads with smart solar road panels
Start small—at home, in business parking lots
Extend to larger public areas
6. Waste to Energy
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:
The Waste-to-Energy Solution
Recuperation Transformer (SERT)
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
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"
People stay connected anywhere, anytime and with great ease
Human energy efficiency optimization
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.
complex electronic circuits
eco-friendly, laser thin glass
8. Global Tap
Accessibility to clean drinking water across the world
Affordable or free of charge
Reasserting that access to water is a
Develop a tap fund
Fund will provide financing for tap
installations, distribution, and maintenance
Provide water at a free or reduced charge
Global Tap installs taps across the world in schools, public locations, and unprivileged communities.
Global Tap believes that water is a fundamental
9. Google Glasses
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
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…

11. Natural Refrigerants
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
Naturally occurring substances, such as hydrocarbons (propane, iso-butane), CO2, ammonia, water and air.
Economic and Social Benefits
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
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
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:
market development for manufacturers
