Solar-powered outdoor street light – $399 For commercial outdoor lighting needs, such as parking lots and streets, this Deelat Industrial streetlight provides 2000 lumen illumination over a 6-meter radius. 9-10 hours of bright sunlight will fully charge the battery for three nights of lighting – without any impact on your electricity bill.

When the passive infrared sensor is activated, it lights up with 1000 lumen illumination. Solar-powered motion light – $85 Deelat Industrial’s solar motion light is perfect for keeping your property safe with a whopping 1000 lumen illumination. As soon as the waterproof light senses motion, it turns on with light that can be set to bright, dim or dark, so it can be used in any space where you need instant brightness without having to flip a switch. Solar-powered outdoor step light – $45 Keep your stairs and walkways safe at night with a solar-powered outdoor step light .

It’s perfect for creating ambience on your patio or courtyard, and it can also prevent trips and falls by providing a guiding light on staircases or entry ways. Small solar-powered motion sensor light – $22 This 200 lumen lamp automatically lights up when you approach – so it’s ideal for use as a security light or for lighting footpaths and high-trafficked entryways where you might have your hands full. A 12-hour charge in the sun will provide over three nights worth of power. Solar-powered 3-in-1 floating/pendant/ground globe light – $28 Looking for versatility in your lighting choices? This luminous globe can be hung high up like a pendant lamp, anchored to the ground to provide accent lighting for your garden or driveway, and it even floats – so you can set it up in a pond or fountain. Wall-mounted solar-powered sconce – $82 This European-style lantern makes a great addition to entryways, and since it’s solar powered there’s no complex requiring necessary. The sconce shines bright with 200 lumens and lasts all night long after soaking up 8 hours of sunlight.

Climate change could make cities 8C hotter by 2100, new studies show

Comments Off on Climate change could make cities 8C hotter by 2100, new studies show

Climate change is raising temperatures , but the impact could be worse in the world’s cities . Researchers say the urban heat island effect – or the fact that cities are hotter thanks to human activity – combined with climate change could increase temperatures in urban areas by around 14.4 degrees Fahrenheit, or eight degrees Celsius, by the end of the 21st century. Three researchers led by Francisco Estrada of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México and the Institute of Environmental Studies projected city temperatures could rise by around five degrees Celsius due to climate change, as well as an additional two or three degrees Celsius as asphalt and concrete crowd out parks and lakes in metropolises, inducing the urban heat island effect. Such increased temperatures could impact human health and burden natural resources . Related: New NOAA tool shows how climate change will affect your neighborhood As major cities prepare for the impacts of climate change, many of them likely haven’t been considering the urban heat island effect. The researchers said many impact estimates don’t include the effect. So they drew on average planetary warming projections combined with the effect, and used data from 1,692 of Earth’s biggest cities between 1950 and 2015, to determine the economic costs of climate change. They also built their research on worse case scenarios: if carbon emissions continue to rise instead of declining. The results aren’t pretty: cities hit the hardest could lose 10.9 percent of GDP by 2100. Only around one percent of the planet’s surface is covered with cities, but the urban centers produce around 80 percent of gross world product. Around 78 percent of the energy consumed worldwide happens in cities. They also generate over 60 percent of global carbon emissions from burning fossil fuels . Cities have a chance to act on the research now – mitigating the urban heat island effect by taking actions like planting trees ; green roofs could help too. The journal Nature Climate Change published the research online this week. Via The Guardian Images via Pixabay and Wikimedia Commons

Mokki is a half lamp, half plant pot that brightens your environment while adding a little whimsy to any space. The design mimics the shape of a house surrounded by a mini landscape that you can design yourself. The lamp is made out of marble and onyx and uses environmentally friendly LED lighting to create an accent piece that is as unique as the space it inhabits. Mokki was created by Caterina Moretti, a graduate of ITESO University and is brought to you by Peca , an independent design studio based in Guadalajara, Mexico. + Peca The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

The elegant NOX SV electric speedboat helps to preserve waterways

Comments Off on The elegant NOX SV electric speedboat helps to preserve waterways

Responsible boaters have always been aware that the key to preserving their water-based environment is to enjoy the moment while keeping their presence (and their exhaust) to a minimum. Don’t disturb the habitat, keep the waters clean and unpolluted–these are the rules of green boating. Much like electric cars, electric boats are a long-awaited solution to eco-friendly boating practices, but up until now they’ve been limited by speed and agility. It seems that this is no longer the case: German shipwrights Rivers and Tides are completing their brand new NOX SV electric speedboat. Made of teak and mahogany, it boasts a 225-hp electric motor and promises a speed of up to 120 km/h. Check out the Rivers and Tides website for more information about this limited series, as only five are being created, and they’re going to go fast. + Rivers and Tides Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Anagraphic’s Starry Light LED Lamp Casts Constellations of Stars Across Your Ceiling

What if you could capture the night sky and bring the light of countless shining stars indoors? Budapest-based design duo Anna Farkas and Miklós Batisz’s new Starry Light LED pendant lamp does exactly that. The unique lamp provides local lighting while projecting a starry night sky on your ceiling through holes drilled in its hemispheric shade. The pendant’s LED light source—specially developed for Starry Light lamps—emits light beams of different strength upwards and downwards, thus creating ideal luminosity for an intimate dinner while conjuring the starry sky. The collection is based on Anna’s original idea of a lampshade as an art piece, and it’s set to debut next week at Tent London during the London Design Festival . + Starry Light The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
