Solar Artifact

Type:  Design
IPR Status:  Others
Secured In:  India
Application/uses: 

To bring visibility to solar technology and to enhance the beautification of a site, presently CSIR-CMERI is developing solar artifacts. Similar to solar tree, solar artifacts can be installed in various places to provide electrical power but these are having better aesthetic view for beautification of the place where these will be installed.
Design of two solar artifacts namely, Attapatram (Umbrella) and Surya Banaspati have been completed and manufacturing of the prototypes will be started soon. The capacity of Attapatram is 1kWP and can provide 0.5kW electricity for 3 hours. These can be installed in the beaches, river banks, parks and even in the lawn of a bungalow. On the other hand, Surya Banaspati is 5kWP capacity and can be installed in the road side, parks and other remote areas to provide electricity. . Solar Flora is of 3kWp capacity and can be installed in the road side, parks and other remote areas to provide electricity.
