Netherlands is ahead of the world!
Check out this YouTube video below. You will be amazed! I was blown away with the technology being implemented there. There are so many things that Americans are missing out on in regards to energy saving technology that we have not implemented.
When I travel to Europe, most escalators are only running when a motion detector is activated as a person steps onto the escalator or moving walkway. How simple is that? Could you imagine the energy savings here in the US? The savings in maintenance costs alone would be great considering the devices do not run as often and the break downs would probably be less.
Check out the cool video below in regards to the highways in the Netherlands. It is so cool!
