Issue

Fossil fuel dependency

There is a strong dependency on fossil fuels.

The amount of electricity generated by solar panels or windmills is not constant. This creates an imbalance on the electricity grid.

Solution

EnergyUnit

The EnergyUnit is a design in which an area is set up so that energy can be generated with sun, water, wind and geothermal energy. This means that energy can always be generated, creating a constant supply of renewable energy, even if the sun is not shining or when there's no wind.

EnergieUnit

Pros

  • Being independent of large energy suppliers and the weather conditions.
  • The design of the solution is scalable, the current form is good for 2000 households but can also be scaled down to 1 household.
