A group of researchers and scientists have launched the “Global Apollo Programme” with the goal of making renewable energy less expensive within the next ten years.
Silicon Valley startup Ubiquitous Energy is making the world’s first transparent solar cells, a technology that could greatly expand the reach of solar power. Their technology is an invisible film that can go on any surface and generate power, which could lead to cell phones and tablets that never run out of batteries – or skyscrapers that can use their massive banks of windows as solar panels.
Future technology has to consist of machines, materials and molecules that adapt to the biologic cycles of earth instead of perturbing them, and they have to enrich earth with life-enhancing stimuli instead of discharging poisons. What is needed, therefore, is a different, new “nature of technology,” an evolution whereby technology adapts to its environment.
