System built in the environment to promote use of alternate energy
The people’s power pavilion is a massive structure, designed to be a large gathering place that will be integrated with an alternate energy system.
The system has three power sources, including the sun, the wind and human muscle power.Michael Jantzen is the designer and its innovation is meant for serving the community in two fold manner; one as hub of alternate energy production and second as an architectural art attraction.
The pavilion will be mounted with large custom vertical axis wind turbine.Flexible solar cells will be atached on the roof as long black strips for capturing energy from the sun.
People’s muscle power will be acquired through the use of exercise bikes. These bikes will get activated using cell phones.
The electric energy will be delivered to the local grid. The structure is self sustained. The centre of the pavilion will be fixed with a low energy consuming LED display screen and light.
The design is planned to provide plenty of space to the visitors for sitting and enjoying.The structure will have glass doors that can be closed during the winters and left open during summers.
The roof has been designed to collect rainwater that is channelled to storage tanks under the pavilion and can be used for watering the vegetation on campus and the surroundings as well.
This structure is a central hub for alternate energy . It is suitable for setting up in various locations and will help to educate people about the use and need of renewable energy.
