Emerging Green Technologies..!

Smart Lighting
  It's no longer a question of whether incandescent bulbs will go, but when. Compact Florescent Lights (CFLs) are the future. CFLs cost more but are vastly cheaper over their life span because it takes eight or more incandescent bulbs to match the life span of a CFL.
Daylight Harvesting
  The power of natural lighting to meet the lighting requirements of buildings is going to be at the forefront. Intelligent self-sensing controllers will help make optimum use of natural light.
Electric Cars
  Powered by thousands of Li-Ion batteries, the electric car can do 0 to 60 mph in four seconds, outrunning practically every other production car on the planet.
Plug-In Hybrids
  They complement biofuels, such as ethanol and biodiesel, by helping limited supplies of homegrown liquid fuel go further. What's more, since they use the existing grid to power up at night, they'll require little additional infrastructure.
High-Tech Recycling
  Conveyer belts of mixed recycling materials can be swished through a series of smart sensors and sorters. Magnets pull out steel and iron, blowers tease out bags and paper, while shakers and centrifuges help separate other materials.
Green Computing
  Computers made from recycled materials with components designed for easy recycling will dominate the IT products landscape. Energy efficiency will be the hallmark of all future devices.
Wind Energy
  Wind power has become the utility industry's first choice for an environmentally friendly source of power.
Solar Energy
  Photovoltaic cells will power solar energy systems. Lowering the cost of converting the sun's photons into electrons will help put solar energy on more roofs.
