EV Rapid Charger
This is an EV (Electric Vehicle) Rapid Charger. This design is made to be environmentally friendly with a solar roof to power the machines basic functions and can be manufactured very easily from recycled materials. The over arched roof provides a small amount of shelter for the user when plugging in and its top lights act as availability indicators.
Upgradable Home Battery
This is a beehive inspired battery unit with hexagonal modules where you can install extra batteries to increase your storage capacity. The modules change colour depending on how full they are so at a glance the owner can see how much energy they have stored.
EV Rapid Charger
This is an EV (Electric Vehicle) Rapid Charger. This design is made to be environmentally friendly with construction from recycled materials.
It has coloured lights designed to let people see charging and availability status at a glance.
This is a basic home battery unit which is designed to blend into a building so it is not noticeable to people.
The battery can be constructed using recycled car batteries and recycled plastics for the main body. The electronics can also be easily recycled with the display using old car satnav displays.
The motorway roof is designed to be the largest solar farm in the world!
This roof can provide benefits to everyone. The roof has a controllable light meaning drivers can't get dazzled from the sun and the roof can shelter vehicles from the rain. The roof also has a built-in carbon & emissions filter meaning all the pollutants from vehicles is captured and prevents them from reaching the atmosphere. The roof also reduces road noise so nearby residents won't hear it as much as well as covering the motorway with a green solar roof so it does not tarnish the view as much.
