We all know that mountains of landfills have the ability to produce electricity. In British town Huddersfield, people have used the ability of their landfills to produce electricity by powering up trucks. Because of this, the town boasts off their trash collecting trucks that are powered by none other than by their trash itself. A 3.5 ton modified transit Smith Edison truck is incorporated with a 40 kilowatt hour lithium-ion battery pack. This battery pack now gives the truck the ability to run a decent speed of 50mph and has a range of 100 miles after a single eight hour charge time.
Street lighting is definitely one of the huge energy consumers in every town. Government however, cannot just allow a street to be less illuminated for it will be a treat on its residents’ safety.

Because of using the LED technology, the Calcinate, Bergamo government was able to save over 40% of their energy consumption.
Empty spaces are common in many cities around the world particularly in lower Manhattan while many of our brothers and sisters made themselves contented with the very limited space they have. Good thing, there is a proposal from Workac that will utilize this underused space in lower Manhattan. Hailed as Plug Out, this one of a kind building proposal will house 45-stories of housing unit wherein each unit has independent section and are rotated around the core of the building giving them the chance to take advantage of the panoramic views and sunlight. One of the best eco-feature of the building is the different ecosystem of the section’s rooftop.
