    LEAF-SHAPED SOLAR PANELS COAT BUILDING LIKE IVY โ–บThe revolutionary Solar Ivy project, from SMIT (Sustainably Minded Interactive Technology) combines the piezoelectric effect with photovoltaic technology to generate energy.
    Using the sun and the wind to provide renewable energy for the building, the Solar Ivy system also becomes a shade screen that minimizes solar heat gain. Once again, nature serves as the perfect source of inspiration.
    I hope this concept would become widely accepted.

    Solar-power system could provide clean drinking water in rural India for the first time. A solar-powered purification system could slake the thirsts of rural India with clean drinking water for the first time. This would be no ordinary feat. Tens of millions of people in India lack access to potable water, and roughly 600,000 Indian children die every year from water- and sanitation-related diseases like diarrhea or pneumonia, according to UNICEF. In the countryโ€™s most far-flung regions, where 70 percent of Indiaโ€™s population lives, toxic bacteria routinely fouls at least half of the water supply. But while the Indian government has focused its efforts on treating surface water in rivers and streams, researchers from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland want to attack the source of contamination: sewage.
    Theyโ€™ve developed a system that uses sunlight to induce high-energy particles within a photocatalytic material, which uses light to generate a chemical reaction. These, in turn, activate molecules of oxygen, mobilizing them to destroy bacteria and other organic matter.
    Because the materials require no power source, an off-grid system requires little more than attaching the photocatalyst to containers of contaminated water and angling them toward the sun until theyโ€™re safe to drink. If necessary, the system could be used in tandem with a filter to catch larger particles.

    More than 400 Architecture Firms address Donald Trump on Climate Change in an Open Letter - Right before Donald Trumpโ€™s inauguration last Friday, more than four hundred American architecture firmsโ€”such as Leers Weinzapfel Associates, Smith-Miller + Hawkinson Architects, Lorcan Oโ€™Herlihy Architects, Lake Flato, and ZGF Architects LLPโ€”signed an open letter addressed to the incoming president regarding climate change, writes Allison Meier of Hyperallergic. The campaign was organized by the Chicago-based organization Architects Advocate, which formed in September.

    The letter asks that Trump, who has denied that climate change exists, commit himself to finding more sources of renewable energy, providing funding for renewable energy technologies, and honoring the Paris Climate Agreement. Right before leaving office, Barack Obama transferred $500 million to the Green Climate Fund. This subsidy goes toward the $3 billion Obama promised on behalf of the agreementโ€”the US currently owes $2 billion more, according to The Guardian. It is now up to Trump as to whether or not the full agreement will be met.

    In the letter, the architects state that they โ€œare dedicated to creating healthy, productive, and safe communities for allโ€ in a โ€œway that is economically viable, socially equitable, and environmentally sustainable.โ€ Trump nominated Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency. Pruitt has spoken out against the government regulating water and air pollution
