Emergency Power Generator

Profile Info

Sam was inspired by the Christchurch earthquakes to develop a solution to a pressing problem - the sudden loss of electricity would render people unable to charge their cellphones for essential communication during a disaster. Sam was inspired to use the same solution to help people in developing countries, and has achieved the beginnings of this, with one unit already in Tanzania.

Emergency Power Generator was a finalist in the 17+ Years category, well done Sam!
