This mobile solar power station can instantly be installed anywhere in the world, providing electricity at the push of a button. From Ecosphere Technologies, the PowerCube is a shipping container that will instantly pop-up and start generating and storing energy. Designed to travel quickly and easily, the self-contained generator is the size of three standard shipping containers.

The mobile solar power station can be used for a number of purposes, whether military or humanitarian in nature. It could be used for disaster relief as well. The pop-up panels provide 400% more energy than simply placing solar panels on a roof, resulting in a maximum of 15 kilowatts. This added square footage allows the station to give power to major systems, which wouldn't otherwise be possible.
