Buoyant Energy Generators
The FloES System Can Supply Electricity to Flooded Communities

By: Amelia Roblin (Superstar) Mar 14, 13

When an area has been inundated, electricity is one of the first things to go. Even when the water level starts to lower, it can be days before people get their power back. A brilliant temporary solution is the FloES Floating Energy Station that harnesses the potent rays of the sun and converts them for use by the most essential technological devices.

The team behind the design of FloES comprises architects Masato Ashida, Alvaro Conti and Takuya Onishi, plus professor Kmonsin Chathurattaphol and students from INDA/Chulalongkorn University. Together they’ve created an efficient hub with four Kyocera solar panels that can supply up to 2450Wh per day. This is enough for the MEET ENERGY FloES to power five laptops for five hours, 10 LED lights for five hours and charge 10 mobiles phones.
