The E-QBO PV Covered Cube from Romolo Stanco
Designed by Romolo Stanco, the structure is a cube of 5X5X5 meters that is covered entirely with solar panels and is capable of producing as much as 14KW of maximum energy while can offer a minimum of 7KW of energy even on a day that is not beaming with sunshine entirely. Since the cube is covered entirely in solar panels, it can produce solar power no matter what time of the day it is. The structure is also laced with LED strips that add to the aesthetic appeal of this dark cube.
The structure does look like it came right out of the world of ‘Tron’ and we love the minimalistic look along with the fact that it can tap into solar power. It can be used as community hub that will power your gadgets, while you are out and act as a Wi-Fi hotspot. But it can surely be customized to act as small shopping installations that are completely off grid and depend only on solar power. The E-QBO can be designed in dimensions of one’s choice and we have seen homes in the past that have similar unassuming cubic form.
Maybe, several E-QBO units together can form even a zero energy home. For now, structures like these at various points in a city can offer you a quick and easy charging point that is all about going solar.
