Sudpave™ plastic grid pavers are used to control the run-off of rain water to limit the impact on over loaded storm water infrastructure. Sudpave™ is an open cell structure, which is either gravel filled, for frequent intensive use, or grass planted for occasional consecutive use. The open structure allows rain water to permeate into the ground at its source. Sudpave™ is now manufactured in South Africa to meet the increasing demand for paving products that satisfy the requirements of a Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS).
In the future, energy provision will heavily rely on renewables. Solar, wind
and water are available as unlimited suppliers of energy. In Germany for
example, the sun shines for up to 1900 hours per annum. This represents
approximately 1000 kWh per square metre of free energy which can be
converted into heat. This enables not only a largely CO2-free heat generation
but also creates greater independence from fluctuating energy prices and
reduces your monthly energy bills.
