Gijsbert Koren is aiming to make wind power even greener with his bamboo windmills. A bamboo windmill would provide a slew of benefits to the environment and the energy grid.

Bamboo is a super plant that grows remarkably fast. Bamboo windmills could be made with a lower cost and could operate more efficiently then their non-bamboo counterparts. Gijsbert Koren's design is still in its conceptual stages, but hopefully it can see production in the near future.
