We crowd fund solar projects so that energy savings can be invested to support broader community aspirations, from creating employment for people recovering from homelessness, through to scholarships for organic farmers. If you have a social mission,
Our idea is a milk pasteurization product that tackles the problem of climate change by producing needed product (safe milk) alongside renewable energy production.
Our team of Stanford electrical engineering PhDs have invented a new, low-cost, supe
Groundbreaking work has established the viability of a world powered by 100-percent-renewable energy using existing technologies. BUT no implementation pathway currently exists.
This is a modular community-energy-system design, which tackles multi
Our Idea is to leverage existent (international) relationships in P2P lending for renewable energy. On the EnergyLend platform, we connect RE Social Enterprises/NGOs, RE Providers, and Individuals who want to have RE, to lenders around the world.
We believe that everyone should have the ability to support clean energy.
So we created a new way for people to take action.
It's a pretty simple idea actually. We raise money through crowdfunding to put solar panels on community-serving nonpro
Our idea envisions a platform aiming to shape the available information on Renewable Energy Community projects and put together interested parties.
The goal is to propitiate the disruption of the actual energy model and work towards community-ba
A new pilot program will be tested in select suburban cities with current solar customers that allows them to come together as catalysts of change in the movement towards clean renewable energy. Current solar owners will be invited to an appreciation
Transform the physical activity into electricity!
Our idea is to use the force invested by the human body in moving heavy weights, walking, swinging and other activities, into energy.
With the combination of discounts and gamification incentive
Taxis based on Solar energy, Biofuels and Kinetic energy!
Two complementary approaches: (1) creating retrofitting kit for existing vehicles (tuk-tuks, taxis and buses); and (2) designing brand new green taxis.
The SunSaluter (www.sunsaluter.com) is a solar panel rotator designed for the developing world. Using only gravity and water, the SunSaluter enables a solar panel to rotate and follow the sun throughout the day, boosting efficiency by 30%. It also p
Across America, local officials are constantly making choices that set the pace and scale at which renewable energy displaces polluting sources (or not), like whether to keep an older fossil fuel plant running 20 more years, or replace it sooner with
Communities can make themselves independent by using their daily waste to produce energy.
In Germany there is a community of 180 people nearby Berlin which are completely autarc from national power-plants. Read their story below!
Our idea is an interactive worksheet that tackles the challenge of designing renewable energy projects that effectively motivate whole communities by teaching project leaders to assemble a wider range of motivations for their communities.
In the Kafue Plains of Zambia, where fishing is the predominant means of generating income, fishing communities need an efficient way to keep their catch cold until its sold. Ice blocks are currently the most common method of preserving and storing
AVAVA Systems mission is to design the most compelling and sustainable solutions for affordable housing in the world.
We believe renewable energy should be fully integrated into to our living and working spaces as a standard option. This combined w
In this study, we aim to develop a prefabricated housing concept, named ENERCUBE, which combines innovative architecture and energy generation through the integration of solar panels. We want to bring contemporary design – an aspect that is typically
Empower Generation empowers women to deliver clean energy to communities. We identify, train and support women as entrepreneurs to sell portable solar PV lighting and mobile charging solutions to their last mile customers in Nepal. The widespread us
Wind and solar power are now so cheap in many regions that sometimes what’s holding renewables back isn’t cost: it’s communication. We propose encouraging the key players—the community, utility, and renewable power plant—to work with each other to ma
