Keeping Warm Like a Honeybee

In the land of Milk and Honey, the honey bee is one to be emulated. Specifically, for the purpose of solar water heaters that have been created based on the honeycomb model.

More succinctly, Israeli company Tigi Solar has taken its inspiration from the worker bee to create a very unique and Earth friendly solar water heater. Building Tigi's solar water heater in the shape of a honeycomb creates a far more efficient solar water heater. In fact, it is so efficient that it can pipe boiling water made from the sun into people's homes.

Tigi's solar water heater, aptly named Honeycomb Collector, is based on a "transparent insulation mechanism" which increases the efficiency of the water heater with minimal energy loss.

Not only does national use of the Honeycomb Collector reduce national energy usage and energy costs, but the technology, while currently being used in a warm climate country like Israel, also aims to reduce energy costs in colder countries in Europe.
