The under utilization of solar energy in the world inspired us to design this project.

What it does

This project tackes Goal 7 of Category 1 by providing a plan to harness the power of solar energy in the Saharan desert by creating a solar farm to meet all of the electricity demands of the world. The project is to be funded by several major investors who will then get to sell this energy, but at a cost equal to that of traditional energy sources.

How we built it

We used HTML, CSS, and Javascript to code the website, and used Java to code the simulation.

Challenges we ran into

We tried embedding applets, but weren't able to, hence we chose to use Javascript and the Java simulation instead.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We were able to put in hard work and do something we've never done before.

What we learned

We learnt new languages, how to use github, and the fruit of perseverance.

What's next for Saharan Solutions: Final

We hope to further and advance this project pitch it as a plausible solution to Goal 7 of the SDGs.
