Proteus

Solar power from the hydrosphere.



Design-project developed together with the University of Aveiro.

Solar power is more efficient than ever. However, it still requires large extents of land.
Proteus is a modular solar system that follows the sun in declination and right ascension. It does this by being assembled as islands that rotate around central access while the panels oscillate vertically.
