“With organic solar cells, it will be inexpensive, colorful and flexible…With the internet of things and connected products it will be part of your home network, untethered and full of sensors.” – Vivien Muller
“Electree is delivered in modules which you assemble to create your own tree. This method makes it possible to produce an infinity of different shapes. You can model it according to your wishes and at the same time optimize the orientation of the photovoltaic cells and thus increase its effectiveness.” – Vivien Muller
Imagine rows of Electrees cascading down your neighborhood, sharing space with that of biological trees. Your home, alongside the rest of your neighborhood’s homes, is being charged 24/7, either by direct sunlight or by the stored excess energy overnight. Entire cities could potentially follow this route, especially for transportation as companies like Tesla Motors continues dominating the automobile industry with their electric vehicles. How would you use an Electree if you had one?
