Disenfranchised members of the community are those hit hardest by hefty power prices, not to mention the adverse effects that unsustainable power has on our planet. To respond, this team developed ‘Generating Possibilities’ – an idea to use a compressed spring coil to generate and harvest electricity. The idea is designed to be environmentally sustainable, and make electricity more accessible in remote areas, particularly for those of a lower socio-economic standing.
To trial their idea, this team is going to develop a miniature version of their generator which can be hand powered to charge a battery. They will use this prototype to iterate their thinking, then use this evidence piece to support the build of their bigger idea.
