  1. A good news for innovation and environment comes from Denmark, pioneer in the sector of renewable energy. A team of British designers and artists have proposed a floating tourist attraction that would gather solar energy in Copenhagen Harbor as the Danish city works to become carbon-neutral by the year 2025. And this flosting attraction is a giant duck. That’s right! A giant sea duck could power Copenaghen with renewable energy! Human mind can do wonderful things sometimes. Built from lightweight steel and covered in solar panels, the “energy duck” would by day collect the sun’s rays and by night bask the harbor in LED lights that change color in rhythm with the hydro turbines inside it. Based on its modelling, in its entirety, the energy yield of the generator would be 75% of a fully optimized solar farm on the same site. additionally, ‘energy duck’ has been conceived to be completely scalable depending on the situation: a 40m high duck serves a town; a 20m high duck serves a village, and a 4m high duck serves an individual house. It can be a very, very visited tourist attraction and also a giant renewable energy hybrid generator. It could represent a big step forward in the energy sector but most of all: it’s a sea duck!
