Solar energy through ChemisTree

Is it possible to use trees in electricity production? Surprisingly, yes, it is! Transparent cellulose films can enable greater efficiency of solar cells through their haze effect.

Events

Beautiful electric powered boat Skand designed by Jean Munck and Laura Hietala.

Electric-powered boat SKAND

The boat is powered by solar cells and makes no noise in the water. It has also been designed for rental use or as a city boat so that many people in the future can enjoy being on the water, while saving nature and materials.

Hack our habitat

Aggressive urbanisation is straining our ecosystem. Rising construction volume causes massive demand for energy-intensive construction materials, and construction already accounts for 39 per cent of the global CO2 emissions.
