About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

A large percentage of world population remain without access to electricity, these are the most marginalized and poor communities. Although they have implemented the use of device as solar cells or wind turbine the geography is very diverse and the climate depends on the area and season of the year, this complicates implementation and doesn't guarantee a constant performance.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

The use of only one device that takes advantage every weather conditions to generate electricity.
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

The access to electricity guarantees a better living condition, for example, the lighting, refrigeration, communication and education. This make a big difference for opportunities of these communities. Without electricity there is no human development.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.

For now it is on idea stage, but I am excited to carry out this project. The future impact of the project would be a new focus for make or redesign new sources of renewables energies.

Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?

For now start to create the device, our next step is optimize the device for be presented as an alternative proposal to currently used devices. A low cost is important to guarantees for the future of the project, for that reason I need the help from other people that give me new ideas for optimize cost.
Sustainability

Financial Sustainability Plan: What is this solution’s plan to ensure financial sustainability?

All the budget for now is only available for its development, so for now there will be no profits. The only financial sustainability that I hope is the support from other people, governments or private companies.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

I have no knowledge if there are other projects that address the same problem, but it would be interesting.

Founding Story

The idea born when I was reading an article about the energy poverty of some communities. Then I started to seek information about that subject. The week go by, when a morning I woke up with a great idea, since that morning the idea improves and takes shape. When I read about the challenge I thought that would be a good way to start the project.

Team

I don't have a team, but I would like receive support from other people for a better idea.
