According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, in 2020, renewable energy sources accounted for about 12% of total U.S. energy consumption and about 20% of electricity generation. If we want to beat climate change in time, those numbers really need to increase

One way of doing that is by using more powerful renewable energy generators. In this video, we bring you several such innovations that are bound to impress you.

There’s the Orbital O2 tidal turbine which is said to be one of the world’s most powerful tidal turbines generating enough energy to power 2,000 households. There’s the flower solar panels that can rotate with the position of the sun becoming 40 percent more efficient than traditional solar systems. There are also floating solar panels which use water to help cool down their temperature and make them super-efficient.

If these three items seem awesome, then you will love the rest of the renewable energy innovations showcased in our video such as giant kites and bladeless wind turbines. All these generators are as different as can be but the one thing they do have in common is that they are helping revolutionize the way we generate clean and sustainable energy! Bravo!
