In today’s modern society, we face a need to reduce the use of fossil fuels and thus we see an increased focus on sustainable and environmentally friendly technologies as part of the solution. Our contribution to this global development is to develop a sustainable “Green” mobile offgrid generator, which could prove superior in numerous applications:  Emergency backup for remote off-grid institutions (military, humanitarian aid, research centers)  Repurpose used battery pack from electric vehicles  Balance the power grid infrastructure when on-grid  A platform to showcase the state of technological advancements in the field of sustainable technologies Initially we expect a finished product to deliver and hold enough power and energy to support a stage at the Summer Festival in Copenhagen Harbor (our partner during the development).
