GSR 2015 - ENERGY EFFICIENCY: RENEWABLE ENERGY’S TWIN PILLAR

JELLYFISH have one of the most efficient means of propulsion on the planet: the recoil drive. Through an ingenious design of elastic-type material, jellyfish can recover and reuse energy previously used for forward movement. This energy-saving capability allows them to move quickly for short periods of time. Called “passive energy recapture”, this mechanism can be used to increase significantly the efficiency of engines or other mechanical devices when long-term motor speed is not important.
