Energy Core / Energy Storage System

Energy Core
Energy Core

What does energy look like?

Energy is invisible. Yet it is our most valuable resource and the key to many problems facing humanity in the 21st century.

The Energy Core aims to visualize the energy stored from photovoltaic panels – to enable us to really see and value this resource – to make it tangible.

The Energy Core is a Home Energy Storage System for use with Photovoltaic panels.

The main idea of this concept is to show a core of energy, which is then encapsulated in a shroud to contain the energy.
