Elmec Solar, participated for the first time at the Milan Design Week with the temporary installation "Green Energy - Green Living"
In the world, 80% of the energy used is produced by burning fossil fuels, including oil, coal, methane.
Plants that use fossil fuels generate polluting gases that damage the environment. In recent years, to protect the environment and to compensate for the growing demand for energy, states around the world have committed themselves to pursuing a model of sustainable development, including the exploitation of kinetic energy produced by wind.
The need to find alternative sources of energy spread following the 1973 economic crisis, when the Arab countries raised the price of oil which caused, among other things, the increase in the price of electricity, consequently increased among the States the awareness of the exhaustion of fossil fuels and therefore the need to seek alternative and renewable resources.
By way of example, an onshore wind farm consisting of 30 wind turbines of 300 kW each in an area where the wind blows at a speed of about 25 km / h can produce 20 million kWh per year, or the requirement of about 7000. families. To achieve the same result, a coal plant would release 22 tons of carbon dioxide, 125 tons of sulfur dioxide and 43 tons of nitrogen oxide into the air.
Panasonic brings the concept of a project for the creation, storage and use of electricity through energy-saving LED and OLED light sources to the 2012 furniture fair. The installation by the Japanese architect Akihisa Hirata, included in the Interni Legacy exhibition, in the courtyards of the State University, underlines the affinity of the system to chlorophyll photosynthesis.
The installation of the architect Akihisa Hirata Photosyntesis at the University of Milan will show the company's solutions for the generation, management and saving energy in the home and for a sustainable future.
