The duck that gave golden eggs may be a fairy tale, but this one that generates solar energy sure as hell isn’t! Conceived by designers Hareth Pochee, Adam Khan, Louis Leger and Patrick Fryer, from Britain, this sculptor is fun to look at and helps the environment too! Inspired by the enormous eider (a northern sea duck), the Energy Duck has been submitted as an entry of the 2014 Land Art Generator Initiative Design Competition.
Standing roughly about 12-storeys high, this buoyant structure collects energy from the sun and stores it all within the duck’s belly. Visitors can also navigate inside the structure made from a honeycomb mesh of lightweight steel. Powered by low power LED lamps that change in color, this beautiful sculpture was created as an answer to Copenhagen’s plans to go carbon neutral by the year 2025!
