Solar energy can be sexy, just ask Marjan van Aubel

TEDxAmsterdamWomen - Marjan van Aubel

Often when you think of solar energy you think of expensive, bulky solar panels but inventor and solar designer Marjan van Aubel, in collaboration with scientists, engineers and institutions is creating solar designs that you want to have in your house.

Marjan creates objects with solar cells – transforming everyday objects into well designed power sources. “A window doesn’t have to be just a window anymore, it can also function as a little power station”, says Marjan.

Marjan sees global warming as one of the biggest problems we are currently facing. She is helping to bridge the gap by creating designs that serve multiple purposes and create sustainable, accessible energy.

“We can now make solar power available to everyone – not just those that can afford it or in areas where it is allowed”, says Marjan van Aubel.
