Solar Forest Charging System for Parking Lots

Neville Mars has conceived an incredible charging station that takes the form of solar trees. The ‘solar forest’ serves as a source for clean renewable energy and offers shade for the parked cars while they charge.

The Solar Tree: Ross Lovegrove, who most recently caught our eye with his System X modular lighting, has made his name by merging cutting edge technology with great design to produce everything from furniture to lighting. As part of the MAKDesignNite at the MAK museum in Vienna, the artist and his studio have conceived a modular urban lighting system which is powered by the sun.
