Drift Lamp

Bronze
2021

Drift Lamp is a renewable energy product that illuminates docks and bridges by using the river’s tide. The lower part of the design consists of a turbine blade. The blade is protected by a floating enclosure unit that also protects the blade from impacts and damage. An extended arm continuously holds the floating enclosure unit at the correct depth underwater. Depending on the water level in the river, the arm expands and contracts. Drift Lamp generates mechanical energy from the turbine blade, which generates electricity. By using naturally occurring energy as its power source, Drift Lamp reduces energy costs and saves energy at the same time.
