As far as big-box retailers go, it’s hard to dispute the sphere of influence that IKEA casts over the world market. Striking a golden balance between quality and affordability has allowed the furniture giant to build an extensive network of 270 stores in 35 countries, attracting half a billion customers every year. IKEA’s recent investment is exciting because it stands to mobilize these massive distribution channels towards the proliferation of green technology.

IKEA’s GreenTech fund was established eight months ago and is looking to invest in up to ten startups over the next five years. These investments will focus in five key areas: solar panels, alternative light sources, product materials, energy efficiency, and water saving and purification. IKEA hopes to bring its first wave of green tech products to market within three to four years.

Fisker Karma Hybrid Sports Car

I love it when there is a new concept of green technology car, this time the concept came from Fisker. Fisker Karma hybrid car concept is very sleek, luxury, and environmentally friendly. Compare to toyota hi-ct hybrid car, I like Karma’s design much better, and with performance rev out at 0-60 mph in 6 seconds, top speed of 125 mph, not bad for a hybrid car. The Q DRIVE consists of a small gasoline engine which in turn charges the lithium battery packs in the car. According to Fisker, if charged properly, the hybrid would need to use no more than a fuel tank per year, quite a claim!

Let’s hope they put this car into the market soon, because I already see this car in action, so this is not just a hybrid car concept anymore.
