First description of our project

Innovative daily solutions for creating green electricity


1. What Problem do you want to solve ?


World consumption of energy is expected to increase by 40% by 2035 and double by 2050. Growth, environmental concerns (pollution, global warming and reduction of CO2 emission), reducing energy poverty (2 billion individuals on Earth do not have access to modern form of energy), constitute the great challenges of tomorrow.

For instance, a French citizen uses on average 7344 Kw h of electricity yearly.

Our group chosed to focus on electricity consumption. We want to find solutions to create, in a sustainable and green way, electricity, at our own scale and daily.


2. Why does this problem exist?


In our consumer society and furthermore in developed countries, overconsumption is a big issue. We are nowadays in a situation in which ressources use has outpaces the sustainable capacity of the ecosystem. This theory tends to augment with growing populations and the need in energy are increasing with the multiplication of energy consuming products. In a world where resources are exhaustibles, we cannot keep the perenity of our ways of living.

We must react and act on our own level to fulfill the increasing demand.


3. What breakthrough are you commited to creating?


Our daily actions aren’t profitable in a sense that we could create electricity thanks to our daily life. Opening a door, opening a laptop, walk. There are hundreds of ways. We would like to find an innovative way of creating and stacking electricity.
