Target groups

Custom (all humans)

Observation

Everyone on the planet will be impacted. From the wealthiest nordic people to the less resourceful "third world" communities.

Conclusion

This idea has the potential to bring well-being to each and everyone of us.

Solution

The PowerCell is unique by its versatility. It can be used from charging a smartphone to powering a vehicle (Tesla car, for example), to even an entire house!

What makes your solution unique?

The size will remain the same, no matter the use. Being made out of super-capacitors (a technology which already exists), the PowerCell can store huge amounts of electricity, thus its versatility. It can power a cell phone charger for a matter of years, or a house for a month until recharge.

How it works: Step 1

The PowerCell works by using graphene supercapacitors, ultra-clustered just like in a computer processor. Think of it like a wallet sized battery, which instead of holding electricity in a chemical - steampunk way, holding it Elon Musk style: compact and efficient.

How it works: Step 2

Supercharging capability: PowerCell can be charged in an instant (just like a normal capacitor does), and release its energy as desired, fast or slow - depending on the needs.

Describe how your solution works step by step:

Step 1: Unbox your new factory charged PowerCell Step 2: Plug the Cell in your house's electrical pannel Step 3: Enjoy free, clean energy for the following month Step 4: Recharge the PowerCell at the nearest CleanEnergy point, or plug it in to your solar roof. Only charge your PowerCell with that old coal electricity if none of the above available.
