A solar powered machine that recycles waste into tiles
This Trashpresso machine holds a complete mobile waste recycling plant capable of upcycling plastic and fabric waste into architectural tiles. A key element is the solar panels on its exterior, which means that it doesn't require access to the grid or a generator to produce enough electricity for the waste upcycling processes. Another is its size that allows it to be moved nearly anywhere a tractor trailer can reach, including remote locations. https://www.treehugger.com/sustainable-product-design/solar-powered-trashpresso-converts-plastic-and-fabric-waste-floor-tiles.html

Energy from paint?
Researchers at RMIT (Australia) have developed a solar paint that can absorb water vapour and split it to generate hydrogen. Hydrogen is a clean source of energy, used in fuel cells and as combustion fuel. Imagine exterior walls of homes and buildings as the source for the energy they use.

The world's first hydro-solar power plant
In Portugal the world's first hydro-solar power plant has commenced operation.
