Design consulting firm Pensa has come up with a concept for a renewable energy source to light urban areas and help reconnect NYC people to the water that surrounds them. ‘Light Reeds’ resemble the natural plant life found in water, gather energy from the currents using an underwater turbine, and sway with the water flow.

Could Water-Powered ‘Reeds’ Replace Street Lamps Near Urban Waterways?

They emit a soft glow, which changes color depending on the quality of the water. For more information, take a look at Pensa’s concept video for its urban intervention:
