Solar Lily pads at river Clyde

Whereas most urban design schemes to generate more renewable electricity would usually focus on rooftop photovoltaics or wind turbines on public buildings, it takes a creative leap to envision Solar Lily Pads. But of course, the idea is perfectly natural, and makes good sense when you consider that the intrinsic design of the lily pad is all about maximizing access to the sun’s rays. We hope this great idea takes off and inspires both city governments and other designers to get creative with the design of photovoltaics.

Came across this river while reading something; surely it is very interesting.

You are really lucky Rupesh, spending so many months in Europe while studying and staying at the one of the world's best technical hub!
