The bankers went on to acknowledge this was partly their fault because they had no way of valuing this natural capital, nor did they currently recognize the danger to the stability of some companies because of its destruction. They want governments to force companies to disclose their dependence on natural capital and the impact they have on it by disclosures in annual financial reports.

UK is Experimenting with Electric Highways That Wirelessly Charge Cars While Driving

UK is Experimenting with Electric Highways That Wirelessly Charge Cars While Driving | Clean Electrons | Scoop.it
Wouldn’t it be great if you never had to stop and refuel your car? For UK-based drivers of electric vehicles, this could be a possibility in the not-so-distant future. Highways England has announced plans to test a wireless power-transfer technology that they eventually hope to build throughout the country. If successful, electric cars would be recharged as they drive over roads that have special electromagnetic fields buried underneath the ground.
The British government is already committing £500 million over the next five years to keep the country at the forefront of this technology, although there’s no set date for testing yet. Stuart Thompson, a spokesman for Highways England, told the BBC, “By 2016 or 2017 we will hold off-road trials - in other words not on a public road.” Experiments will run for about 18 months, at which time the government agency will decide on committing to an on-road trial, which could be expanded from there.
This isn’t the first time that this technology…

If they figured a way to make it so an electric car charges while you drive, it would solve the problem of the lack of battery, if the car has it. If it doesn't have enough battery life left, instead of going all the way home, the car is already charging as you drive. Would be a great improvement.

In Russia, there are gas stations that charges cars instead of gas. I think this is a great way to save gas and save the environment. There are few hundreds of them all over Russia. The question is, how much would it cost? would it be cheaper or would it be more expensive?  The world would change in a great way if almost every singe gas station had a charger that charges cars instead of gas. 

Jada Williams's curator insight, September 14, 2015 11:10 AM

In Russia they are putting chargers for the electrical vehicles. All gas companies are required to have these chargers at their gas station by 2016. Since the Japanese Mitsubishi company sold russia the eletric cars. There will be almost 100 electric car chargers.

stephanie mckenzie's curator insight, September 14, 2015 11:18 AM

With Russia being a huge country, it makes a huge impact. It would make or at least make a start, on a clean eniroment there and an example around the would.  I also think it would make people of Russia think of having electrical cars. I think that would make going through the vast land of snow and nothing a little easier. I also think that if Russica can do it so can the world like China. China would probably have the biggest impact.

Sunport lets you use solar power every where you go, Just by plugging it in . It works by measuring the electricity it takes from the wall and use it as solar energy. Kalipak is a green energy generator that fits dozen of off grid energy stuff. Solar paper is the thinnest and lightest energy charger in the world. Sunraiden is specially design for small off grid applications. Solar station is a ready solar power ,battery, use internet, you can power you tiny house,RV, or cabin.

Aaliyah Billinger's curator insight, September 15, 2015 7:14 PM

solar energy can do so much. they have this new charger out called sunport and you can charge your phone using the sun and electricity. It has no solar panels on that back of the phone, what you do is plug it in the wall and it measures the electricity and then it measures it out by what the sun can produce. After that you phone should be good I think that is so cool. I would like one or try one in the near future.

katelyn wellsby's curator insight, September 14, 2015 11:22 AM

From what I'm reading i don't think it's a bad idea. By communicating with other cars on the road, each individual car can get a picture of its entire environment, warning the driver of potential hazards long before they would be visible to either the driver or the car's own sensors. Having this would prevent so many car crashes.

Remedy's Melody's curator insight, September 14, 2015 11:23 AM

To have the self -driving vehicles to talk to each other would be an amazing idea. That way there'd be less crashes happening yearly. Programming the vehicles such as buses, where to stop at and their routes is also a very brilliant idea. The only down side to it would be that it would cut down some people from the work force.

Altin Pevqeli's curator insight, September 14, 2015 10:05 PM

In my opinion, this idea is a great one. There is nothing else under a bridge except if it is close to water. If there is nothing there, might as well put something there. Also something this big would probably also give the bridge a bit more stability.  It is a double win in my eyes.
