Presentation Summary

  • There's no lack of available solar energy data for permanent installation, but we don't know how much of that energy could be collected in various different mobile use cases.
  • That's why we provided few users from Equator to Arctic with solar-powered devices that included a recorder like an airplane's black box, to log the availability of solar energy in real life.
  • The mission of " Nokia Solar Charging Pilot" was to try and answer fundamental questions about how viable and easy it is to charge mobile phones by solely using solar power.
  • It was organize in a way that while we collected the data and learned the experiences were shared on the go and people were able to comment and share their experiences.
