Sustainable Minded Interactive Technology (SMIT), a Brooklyn, NY based sustainable design company has developed Solar Ivy, a hybrid clean energy system which questions industry norms. The Solar Ivy system is composed of a 8x10 inch "leaf" panels which combine solar photovoltaics and piezoelectrics to harness both sun and wind energy. The panels also greatly reduce air conditioning demands by providing shade.
Dedicated to environmental sustainability, SMIT uses recycled/reclaimed materials to produce the system which resembles and behaves like natural ivy on a building's wall.
