Powering the GLOBE Grid: Collaborative Energy

The GLOBE Microgrid is both a technical and philosophical  breakthrough: come and learn about how one man with a dream brought 10 companies and 30 people together to achieve real-time renewable energy on the Innovation Expo floor.  

Charge your phone from solar power, check out EV charging stations in action, jump on a pedal-powered generator, and track the action and activity on the real-time power monitoring system. This extremely rare, fully-functional, collaborative energy grid can only be seen at GLOBE – technology not to be missed!
