Inspiration: Inspiration came from the Himalayan region of Nepal, seeing supply chains reliant on the carrying capacity of local Sherpa's, carrying Cast-iron stoves on high pass trails navigable only by foot and yak, disrupted by disaster in 2015 earthquakes severely restricting remote area access and emergency response capability
What it does: Our project is an emergent ecotourism business opportunity and sustainable transport model for isolated islands. It is a standard shipping container format that can be readily deployed by air, land or sea.
How we built it: As a team, we knew that modern, ruggedised eBikes and Solar+Storage consumer products exist which, if put together into a ready to use combination could transport clinical staff to where they were needed faster than by foot, arriving with a ready source of power + lighting to assist.
Challenges we ran into: Attempting to gain access to the required insolation data. Complications with the bike's implementation into the shipping container.
What we learned: New collaboration platform (Confluence), Web design (Weebly).
What's next for SolarEdVenture: Market Validation and detailed manufacturing plans. Pilot site liaison.
