>>4th KU-AN OPEN LAB on Sep 23rd

The Good Design Awards 2022 >>Website of Good Design Award

In 2021, we constructed “KU-AN”, a laboratory of off-grid design and technology to install MPC society ,and we have been developing the possibilities of a new environmental energy area using MPC. “KU-AN” is an off-grid test site to study technologies which supply electricity for households stably for a long time at off-grid places, and develop MPC cells and charge-controller system.

We have introduced our own technology “MICROPOWER COLLECTION” (MPC) in “KU-AN”. 1500 wooden MPC cells using compost and soil supply electricity to 800 12-volt LED lights installed inside. We simultaneously record both an electricity log to observe electric sustainability of this and environmental data such temperature and humidity. From these data, we also observe electric characteristics of MPC by environmental factors.
