Under the dual pressures of environment and resources, Electric Vehicles (EV) are gaining popularity. However, charging is always a big problem for EV. Green Algae Energy-EV charging stations can help solve this problem. EV charging stations function using the photosynthesis of green algae to charge the mobile charging pile, achieving power supply to EV. It would be of great convenience for tourists who use EV. Electric Vehicles charging stations are designed to fit into small shipping containers, which can be transported to the Tokyo Olympic venues by trucks. After the Olympics Games, it can be moved to other areas for future use.

Sustainable energy resources are in high demand and this is a great display to the public of how Bioenergy can be a reliable resource.
The iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD is a very precious competition for industrial designers. This award is an affirmation for us and gives us great confidence. We will continue to work hard to produce better designs in the future.
