We’re pleased to exhibit SolarVille—a Playful Research project which reimagines our energy system in the pursuit of democratising access to clean energy.
What is SolarVille?
SolarVille is an ambitious yet fully realisable vision for the future. More specifically, it’s a working prototype of a miniature neighbourhood completely powered by solar energy. Built to a 1:50 scale, some households generate their own renewable energy using solar panels, while others automatically purchase excess electricity directly from the producer using blockchain technology. The result is a model of a self-sufficient, community-driven microgrid where people trade renewable, affordable energy from one another according to their individual needs. The installation is designed by our former architects in residence SachsNottveit.
