Do you have what it takes to change the future of energy and electricity? If so, The Little Box Challenge maybe just up your street.
A cool $1 million is up for grabs, courtesy of Google for the team that can create a smaller and cheaper power inverter. An inverter is an electronic device that takes direct current from items such as solar panels and batteries and converts it into alternating current for use in cars, homes and offices for example.
According to Google, shrinking inverters will change the future of energy, enabling “more solar-powered homes, more efficient distributed electrical grids, and could help bring electricity to the most remote parts of the planet.“
