Providing developing countries with low cost photovoltaic panels
The project uses sample panel components and instructions as an introduction for people in poorer regions to gain experience and learn about the possibilities of solar power applications. Besides of standard telecommunications and agricultural systems, the panels can be used to create a solar cooker and probably a mosquito zapper.
The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
