SOLA / Autarkic Energy

SOLA
SOLA

SOLA is a mobile system for autonomous energy and water supply developed for the specific requirements of an expedition.The concept of the product is based on the personal amount of energy need and its generation. The compound of solar panels on a folding textile achieves an optimal alignment to the sun.
By mounting collectors in between the energy efficiency is maximized on a very small footprint. The removeable battery collects the energy needed by a person in one day. For water purification an artifical UV radiation is generated in a filter plate, which provides pure water safely and quick.
