Sustainable City Lights Using Solar And Wind Power

This intelligent lighting system - Sustainable City Lights, designed by Philips Design - harnesses solar and wind energy, and beams up the LEDs automatically when they sense human presence. If no humans are around them, they simply emit a soft glow.

They take their inspiration from the opening and closing of a flower bud and any surplus energy is transferred to the main grid.

Just two days ago, I saw a pair of lampposts in a parking lot with a big solar panel attached to them. First one I've seen, and I live in a big city.

I think as solar becomes more efficient, more and more uses are being found. The parking meter stations are all solar powered here as well.

I really like the design of those street lights. They are very modern looking I think. I could actually see a smaller scale version that would look great in a modern style home.

I believe these lights would be costly to implement though.....
