While most folks today tend to focus on solar power, tidal power is definitely something that we should all look into and an Irish designer has come up with a sustainable concept lamp design, dubbed the Flowlight. This lamp features a turbine unit that is submerged in the water. The blades of this turbine are designed to operate clockwise and counterclockwise, allowing it to operate with the flow of the river, during both the high tide and low tide.
The Tidal Drop Extension Arm allows the turbine to match the level of water in the river, depending on the tide, ensuring that it’ll be able to continue working regardless of the water level. Energy that is generated is stored in a battery unit that will be used when needed to illuminate the LED strip lighting.
