When talking about eco-friendly vehicle, hydrogen powered ones are known already followed by solar powered ones. However, have you ever heard of a wind powered vehicle already? Well, designer Nathan Hintz have a wind powered vehicle concept called WindJet. As the name suggests, the bright yellow super green car concept will use low drag turbines for its batteries to be recharged while in motion. This can be an amazing concept when it comes to fuel efficiency. However, I find its rear appearance pretty disturbing and maybe weird. Overall, the car concept looks great and its fuel efficient. Great enough for a polluted world we have today.

Driving while saving mother earth, isn’t it a good aim to achieve? Green car technology is now constantly growing. If you were to observe of the design, they evolve each day from the weirdest design to now an elegant and stylish one. The Shift Concept car from Dacia is not only stylish and elegant. This head turning car concept is eco-friendly as well, as it is to be powered by Lithium-ion batteries. This only means that, the Shift Car Concept will be producing zero carbon emission, thus zero harm for the environment. For sure many will be waiting for the production of this car concept because it does not look great on the road, driving this car would be less guilt to the environment as well.
Off-road driving is now becoming a popular hobby to many of the hobbyist worldwide. This only means that more and more carbon footprints are being contributed to our environment, which obviously will harm mother earth and us in the near future. However, the CD2 Grasshopper will soon eliminate this negative effect off-road car can create. Designed by industrial designer Vil Tsimenzin, the CD2 Grasshopper is an off and on-road vehicle that runs using an electric motor. The motor is powered by a rechargeable battery, which on the other hand can be recharged either from a 110V outlet or through a solar or thermal collecting pipe system. Users will definitely have an enjoyable ride as it hit the top speed of 40-45 mph in an approximately 1.25 hours of non-stop driving in a single charge. One more exciting feature that the CD2 grasshopper has and which I am sure that you will agree is its ability to change its color as a power status indicator.

This concept is a sustainable shelter designed for an urban environment. The shelter has numerous green features including the use of solar energy to let the LED lighting system work. It also uses a recycled aluminum for its metallic structure and uses a composite fabric for its canopy.
Like green architecture, green transportation has already started to invade the human lifestyle and Google has just has just announced its investment in the Shweeb and the self-driving-robot car. This futuristic car is still in its early stages and has already set out a few fleets of vehicles across California. The car uses artificial intelligence software that has the ability to sense everything that foes closer to the car. As the software sensed something, the car has the ability to make a decision like any human driver does. According to the engineers behind this project of Google, the car can be lighter and thus, reducing carbon emission and fuel consumption.
Keeping your place cold during hot summer days can cost you a lot and of course, it can caused you to produce too much carbon emission, which is not favorable ideal to the environment. Designers from Studio Kahn have just presented an affordable and eco-friendly way to keep your place cool. Hailed as Ecooler Screen, this one of a kind creation is a concept hollow ceramic cooling system that is made of hollow tiles. It allows users to connect from one to the other, which resulted into a water-filled ceramics.

The Townpod carries a sleek and elegant external look with its Stratosphere White body paint. The car’s touch screen display that allows the users to cooperate with their PDA’s made the car suitable enough for today’s technology world. And the most interesting feature that I know each one of us are getting excited for especially to those who wants to help save the environment is its zero-emission electric powered engine. In addition, the Townpod is capable for personal and business use.
Eco-architecture can be the best option for architects to help save the environment. Joining with those architects into green architecture is Mikuo Studio who had an eco-friendly proposal of Bottrop Higher Technical College built in Germany. Located in an urban area and with a quiet residential neighborhood, the Bottrop Higher Technical College will have a free large flat roof of photovoltaic panels. Other option in mind Is to have some greeneries planted. If this proposal will come into fruition, it will surely help its residents save on their energy use. The building structure may not be lovely to the eyes, well at least it can help save the environment.
