Rawlemon – The Spherical Solar Generator
Solar energy continues to convince a growing number of users. It must be said that this technology is never out of new arguments: the advances succeed each other at a very impressive rate. The latest example is the Rawlemon. This glass ball is able to multiply the energy of the sun … and the Moon! Explanations.
The Rawlemon, whose marketing is just starting, was designed in Spain in 2013 by Barcelona-based German Architect André Broessel. He sought to create a solar system that could be embedded in the walls of buildings so that they may act as both windows and energy generators. But the project isn’t only noteworthy for its solar efficiency capabilities – the ß.torics system is designed to generate lunar energy too!
This interesting machine has the shape of a glass globe (an acrylic polymer with 99% transparency) filled with water. Design level, it’s perfect, and efficiency level, it’s not bad either!
The appearance of Rawlemon was not chosen for aesthetic reasons, but for the sake of performance. Indeed, this water ball is able to focus up to 10,000 times the sunlight … and also from the Moon!
Thus, the Rawlemon converts 70 times more energy than a conventional solar panel, is 35% more efficient than a photovoltaic panel and, above all, it works day and night!
But that’s not all. This invention, which is as powerful as design, is capable of producing electricity … and thermal energy (in other words, heat!) It can light up a house AND bring it heating!
Several models are already on sale (several levels of power and therefore, several price levels) and others (even more powerful) are in presale. For more information, visit the Rawlemon website.
Here, the desktop model that charges smartphones & laptops:
Elegant, classy and powerful, the Rawlemon is announced by EDF as “the beginning of a green revolution”! What convince the last skeptics that our future is in the renewable.
