It may seem strange to call 1,125-foot skyscraper efficient, given the energy it takes to build such a monumental structure.
There are many challenges to achieving the dreamed-about hydrogen economy, but one of them – the ability to make hydrogen from water cheaply and at scale – could be a little closer to being overcome. If it indeed is, renewable energy could become a whole lot more economical.

Classic car designs are just that, classic. Throw in some green tech under the hood though and you’ve got perhaps the perfect melding of old school look and feel alongside next generation carbon reduction and fuel savings engineering.
While most of us are welcoming spring and waiting eagerly for summer, the crew at the Concordia research base in Antarctica have settled into their homes and are ready for the cold, long winter ahead.
