Observation

Night is getting brighter caused by the increasing of light pollution since the LED products introduction. The light pollution can have disturbing influences not only on the flora and fauna but also on the astronomical observations of the night sky. The light pollution is a global problem that the waste which makes the world brighter, mostly on the streets (see example: https://goo.gl/AUrqRr) Wasting energy has huge economic and environmental consequences. We humans are responsible for that.

Conclusion

How can we gain from energy of the pollution?

Solution

During night time a device on the ground of street will absorb and convert the energy from the light pollution to into electricity.

What makes your solution unique?

The renewable energy source from the light pollution. The solution will be needed in the future by increasing of the global waste.

How it works: Step 1

The ground of the street/sidewalk will absorb the energy from the light pollution to generate electricity during night.

How it works: Step 2

The energy source can be also used to the smart traffic system on the street ground or other energy-efficient devices, for example streetlight or household.

How it works: Step 3

Not only for outside but also inside, for example shop mall, rail station and so on.
