The FLOWLIGHT by Shane Molloy is an effective, efficient, and eco-friendly way of illuminating docks and waterfront streets using tidal power.

Using an ingenious "tidal drop extension arm," the FLOWLIGHT by Shane Molloy has a submerged tidal turbine that rises and falls according to the height of the water it is deployed in. This means that the device can effectively generate power in either high tide or low tide, while also avoiding the risk of damage or the need for constant manual adjustment. As for power storage, the lights have a built in battery and daylight sensor that allow them to turn off or on automatically depending on light conditions. It truly is a remarkable design.
