All constructions videos 32m^2 - Solar Fire Energy
Our newly launched GoSol platform creates a virtuous circle of cooperation between businesses and NGOs as well as solar enthusiasts. It is a hub where knowledge, DIY experience, components and services are exchanged. We have developed a business model we call the Open Patent Model. GoSol is run by a small, dedicated, and multi-national team of innovators and environmentalists who have created Solar Fire Concentration Limited, a social enterprise start-up based in Tampere, Finland. Solar Fire aims to break the cost and complexity barriers currently limiting spontaneous viral deployment of solar thermal technologies in humanitarian, commercial and industrial contexts. By developing truly cost-effective, scalable and efficient solar thermal technologies that are built with off-the-shelf materials it is possible to significantly reduce carbon-emissions, deforestation, water-born diseases, air-pollution and energy poverty.

Rural Energy The challenge: Access to clean, affordable and reliable energy is a fundamental driver of economic growth, environmental sustainability and social development. Still 1.4 billion people around the world lack access to electricity, while 2.7 billion people cook with traditional biomass. According to latest forecasts (source International Energy Agency) 1.2 billion people in 2030 will still lack access to electricity. The global electrification rate will rise from 79% in 2009 to 85% by 2030 — but only 50% of people living in sub-Saharan Africa will have access to electricity.

Window Socket – Solar Energy Powered Socket by Kyuho Song & Boa Oh The Window Socket offers a neat way to harness solar energy and use it as a plug socket. So far we have seen solutions that act as a solar battery backup, but none as a direct plug-in. Simple in design, the plug just attaches to any window and does its job intuitively. Designers: Kyuho Song & Boa Oh Energy For buried wire, the wire at 60cm depth. Conduit encloses wire. Conduit is Buried wire is surrounded by sand at 30cm around it. Trench is refilled with the native soil after completion.

About - Emily Cummins When I was four, my Grandad gave me a hammer and began to teach me how to make toys from scraps of materials found in his garden shed. I loved the fact that we could make something out of seemingly random bits, and my interest in sustainable design was born. As I got older I learnt about the properties of different materials and became more experienced in using a range of tools.

Luci Launched on Indiegogo this month, Luci is a proposed sustainable light source for the three billion people around the world living without electricity. Designed by the group MPOWERD, Luci is the first in a series of solar-powered products the company hopes will address the crippling effects of energy poverty around the globe. First and foremost, Luci hopes to provide families with a safe, green and affordable alternative to the widely-used kerosene lamp, whose open flame and toxic fumes pose a looming threat to the household. On the other hand Luci will provide families with access to a clean light source that's also safe—Luci never heats up so that it is hot to the touch, making it suitable for both children and adults.
