How long before technologies will stop being labeled “green” and it'll just be the way it is?
The solar energy storage market alone is expected to balloon to $8 billion in the next 10 years and more and more research at all levels is being devoted to harnessing and storing alternative energy. While electric vehicle sales fell last year, new cars and technologies hitting the market are likely to change that in 2016.
With all that in mind and with so many technologies coming out of research labs and hitting the market, which ones should we really be paying attention to? In honor of Earth Day we're taking a look at the hottest new technologies and trends that will have a big environmental impact in the not-too-distant future.
