We’ve worked with SPACE10 to create SolarVille, a prototype solar microgrid with an energy trading platform powered by Blockchain. The ‘playful research’ project highlights the advantages of combining technologies such as solar panels and blockchain to make clean energy affordable and accessible. By bringing the vision and concept into physical reality, a town built to a 1:50 scale, the design team hopes to advance progress in the field, accelerating the adoption of new technologies.
