“Sustainable energy is the fundamental problem the world faces.” – Elon Musk
Every generation needs a pioneer who can transform industries and societies.
Elon Musk certainly fits this mold.
Musk, 43, was a co-founder of PayPal, who after selling his holdings in that company, looked for ways he could help the world through green, innovative and futuristic businesses.
You may not know his name, but it is likely you have heard of Tesla – his increasingly successful electric car company.
Musk is also the CEO of SpaceX, who is developing the tools and technology to allow us to live in space. And finally, he is the Chairman of SolarCity, his renewable-energy company specializing in Solar Power for both homeowners and businesses.
Musk is such an important figure in the way our future is developing that it is worth looking in more depth at each of his major commercial offerings.

As electric bikes and cars continue to gain in popularity, charging options have become increasingly important.
French company AdvanSolar has developed an innovative and exciting range of solar charging stations.
Two of their key products are designed to charge electric bikes and cars from the power of the sun.
Let’s take a look…
To gain the maximum energy benefits from the sun, you need to live in a South-facing house.
While it is well known that the sun reaches its midday peak high in the Southern sky, you may not realise the significant renewable-energy differences that can be gained from having a South-facing house or roof.
Let’s take a look now at familiar domestic solar-energy technologies and designs, but with special emphasis on seeing how a South-facing house optimises their benefits.
