Solar Farms in Sky - Baharash

Challenge

The challenge was to create an iconic design for the world’s first drone solar farm.

Natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, fires and earthquakes destroy the lives of many people instantly, and cause lingering problems in the aftermaths, in particular the loss of power.

In Japan, following the 2011 tsunami, manufacturers started to provide options where electric and hybrid vehicles can provide power to homes in the event of a blackout.

However, what happens in the event of extreme disaster when the car is also damaged?

This cloud-like solar drone features a versatile mesh structure of solar panels that allows the drone to resist forces of tensions, torsions and compression, whilst in flight.

The aim is to provide instant energy in disaster relief scenarios, where local power has been destroyed. Relocatable Solar Farms in the Sky is one solution.

The objective of this project was to:

  • Provide alternative power systems for communities which are in disaster and require instant energy security.
  • Provide electricity to key buildings of a community, in case of complete power failure.
  • Increase energy security in developing worlds.
  • Design a unique Standalone solar power system.
  • Design a smart solution for public to have access to limited power in critical situations.
