Energy from the sea
Ocean swell (long continuous ocean waves) provides a sustainable solution to harvest energy. The hydro-electricity is generated by the so-called Ocean Wave Power Station, which is designed to withstand extreme storms. One power station can generate the equal amount of energy of 30 windmills, for half the price.

Generating light from gravity?
Gravitylight Foundation is a UK-registered charity organisation with a mission to alleviate poverty and find innovative solutions for eliminating kerosene lamps. One of such solutions is the gravity-powered LED lamp. Its mechanism is built as a pulley system that slowly powers a generator as the weight falls to the ground. To give you an idea: 12 kilo weight generates about 30 minutes of light.
