The living lab is organized by the innovation platform Open-House and the Netherlands Red Cross. The organizations are looking for innovative ways to generate energy in disaster areas and refugee camps. The festival site is the ideal testing situation for the Mobisun solar panels due to the visit of thousands of festival-goers.
Mobisun was among the finalists of an innovation pitch organized last year by Open-House and the Dutch Red Cross. Mobisun’s solar panel with outlet can now be tested at festivals and may offer a realistic solution to the problems experienced by relief efforts in disaster areas.
Special “Camping Guardians” used the solar panel to provide power to festival-goers to pump up their air mattresses or charge phones, for example. Scenarios that also occur in emergency response.
Festival as a testing ground
“The portable solar panel is ideally suited for places where no electricity is available,” said Peter Klaren, managing director of Mobisun. “It weighs only 6 kilos and generates the same power as it comes out of the wall at home. Mysteryland lends itself perfectly as a proving ground to test our innovation in practice.”
In addition to inflating air mattresses and charging cell phones, the portable Mobisun solar panels were also used to amplify the camping band’s sound system and to power the silent disco.
The solar panels worked well throughout the weekend and were able to charge well each time due to the warm and sunny weather.
This includes the use of foldable (lightweight) solar panels that can be connected modularly to the Mobisun Pro.
