SIGUS was invited to present their "TowerPower" concept at the MIT Energy Night at the MIT Museum, 17 October. Although they were asked to present last year's winning poster, this year an addition poster was prepared putting a 'face' to other applicable chimneys that could be repurposed worldwide. Bangladesh and England were shown, representing Third World and First World situations. Obsolescence and pollution were highlighted as the main market drivers for the repurposing concept. Bangladesh is confronted by an estimated 5,000 highly polluting brick burning kiln clusters. The World Bank has a large program for closing the chimneys, and the TowerPower concept may be ideal.
