Gallery: Greenbuild 2010: The Best Eco-Designs From Day 2!

 
These shutters by Plug’n Save are a striking solar electric system and fine bamboo frame that does double duty in the southern windows of your house. We were a little dubious about putting a solar cell behind a window so a test with the energy output will show if this really works - they look great though.

We got to see the Windtronics WT6500 wind generator for Honeywell up close and this thing is big. It’s energy production is built around the outer ring which is a revolution in design. It also starts spinning with very little wind, in fact the display unit was rotating using a just a box fan.

Collins Wood is an FSC lumber provider from California and is one of the first companies to adopt the FSC standard. They caught our attention with this fantastic bike who’s frame is made entirely with FSC wood. While the bike may not be for sale their lumber is and comes from a forest that has been developing sustainable harvesting techniques since 1855.
