In line with Vision 2030, the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and they very fact that we have an abundance of solar resource here in the GCC, a prototype – ‘SolaRead’ – has been built on campus to test a proposed design for a green, sustainable, multipurpose solar-powered eLibrary. The system includes:
- 4 x built-in electronic readers (Kindles)
- Smart LED lighting
- A self-charging station
- A Wi-Fi center
- An interactive info panel
We will be testing the design, tweaking its parameters and monitoring its viability to truly make the most out of green energy!
