Sustainable tech is first on the scene

Monday, February 1, 2016

Engineers, eco-innovators and developers are coming together to light up our nights with renewable energy. From taking air quality readings in Glasgow to wind powered mosquito control in South East Asia, streetlights are the newest form of green tech integration to hit the streets. Being able to see something as ubiquitous as a streetlamp as an opportunity for multi-functioning technology to be a part of our urban landscape is a hugely positive step towards really starting to see how easy reducing carbon emissions  can be. One small structure to light the way, while potentially boosting wifi, controlling instances of disease or acting as a disaster warning system is a smart, efficient and forward thinking way to improve infrastructure. It really is as simple as ensuring that whenever there in room to improve, the sustainable tech is first on the scene.
