Are there any inventors that are well known for their green invention ideas?

    Auguste Mouchout was one of the first in the 19th century to question whether fossil fuels would really last forever. He invented the first solar motor, and in 1861 produced a steam engine powered by the sun. Unfortunately it took another 100 years or so for people to actually put money into significant reasearch for using solar power.

    I don’t think inventors receive much do credit.  There aren’t any famous inventors, though their inventions have gained fame.  Like a lot of the contraptions used in LEED building construction, or plumbing systems that help conserve water or reuse grey water.  The FOOD-SAVER for instance, helps vacuum seal foods to prevent waste.  But the inventor’s name isn’t tied to it.
