Engineers have been challenged to come up with the renewable energy generator (REG) device that will be capable of meeting 90% of the UK's domestic electricity needs for free.
The Climate Change Challenge was launched last week by not-for-profit sustainability organisation UK 8020. It has offered a £100,000 prize for a generator design that could retail for £500 - the average cost of six months domestic electricity.'The Climate Change Challenge is intended to address the problem of fuel affordability in the UK while also helping the environment by creating a REG that can be mass-produced and marketed,' said founder of UK 8020 Robert Lee at the launch of the event.'We are awaiting some interesting inventions and ideas from the nation of inventors out there.'To enter the challenge go to: www.climatechangechallenge.org
