Tidal power is considered to be the storehouses of energy, having a great potential to provide electricity for future generation. Keeping this in mind, Irish designer Shane Molloy unveiled a sustainable lighting system. This system makes use of the flow of tidal river, converting it into electricity. This in turn illuminates the quayside of River Suir with renewable energy. The Flowlight features an outer shell of carbon fiber and water turbine blades, protected by Sub-floatation housing unit in order to shield the blades from rock-strewn river bed. Designed to operate clockwise and anti-clockwise direction with the river’s flow, the water turbine blades generates power during high and low tide. This concept severs as an excellent way to illuminate LED strip lighting the moment daylight fades away.
