Equal Access to Digital Educationย through Green Energy Tech

COVID-19 has affected more than 1.6 Billion learners in more than 190 countries; the impact is more drastic in regions where there is energy shortage as digital solutions can not be implemented due to the energy scarcity. To make education possible during these critical times, the solution has to be digital as well as being energy independent. We are living in a digital society and failure to achieve this creates a gap and inequality in the education system, where the most up-to-date are those who can access energy and all of the opportunities this provides them.

Joining Powers with Plan International & Audi Environmental Foundation

For these reasons, Tespack has joined powers with Audi Environmental Foundation and Plan International Finland in order to close the digital education and entrepreneurial gap in places where there is lack of access to energy or shortage of energy. Together, we will collaborate and support Plan International Finlandโ€™s โ€œYouth Smartup Factoryโ€ in Uganda during 2022 by providing the latest mobile sustainable energy tech that can turn any space into a smart classroom and power any needed mobile device to provide access to digital education. Or as World Economic Forum shared, imagine carrying a smart school in a bag.

Digital Education Powered with Sustainable Energy

Tespackยดs Smart Solar Media system (SSM) can turn any space into a smart classroom by incorporating audiovisuals, solar energy and latest technology thus providing continuous power of up to 8 hours with one recharge. The SSM system has a modular battery system that can be used individually or be joined to turn it into a power station of 120.000mAh (up to 460W of energy). All this can be easily transported in commercial flights thus reducing the overall deployment times in cases of emergencies.

Powering Digital Education and Entrepreneurship

The โ€œPowering Digital Education Projectโ€will power the training centre workshops to carry out digital education in coding, computer skills and entrepreneurshipย  for at-risk youth between ages of 17โ€“24. The project will create gender equality in digital skills while also reducing overall CO2 emissions thanks to its SMART Energy Platform that tracks how much energy has been created sustainably while informing when batteries need to be replaced thus supporting a circular economy.

Project supported by Audi Environmental Foundation

The Audi Environmental Foundation, founded in 2009, promotes green innovations for a livable future. For twelve years now, the Audi Environmental Foundation has been making an active contribution to environmental protection, thus shaping new paths for sustainable activity. The foundationโ€™s commitment is multifaceted and of a long-term nature. In the projects it supports, the Audi Environmental Foundation focuses not only on nature and the environment, but also works toward a sustainable human-environment system.

Three fields of action can be derived from it:

GREENOVATION – combining traditional environmental protection with innovative technologies.

ENTHUSIASM – using a variety of projects and formats to get people excited about the environment

RESPONSIBILITY – taking on social and ecological responsibility through targeted projects and thus giving back to society and the environment.

Stay tuned as we will be releasing energy data, educational milestones and goals achieved during this project.

Combining Software & Hardware

#FutureOfEnergy

Tespack is really honoured and thrilled to have been selected, especially as our main focus has always been to provide the Future Of Energy. Our journey started by providing energy solutions to the consumer sector, scientists and astronauts during their Mars analogs so they could power their mobile devices from smartphones to laptops. Thanks to our first line of energy solutions โ€œSmart Solar Smartpacksโ€, Tespack began to collaborate with NGOs and governmental entities as there was a need in the market for reliable, portable energy solutions that needed to be durable and light, a must when working in remote areas. As our own vision states, we build the Future Of Energy, so we continued to push the barriers of technology and merged Software and Hardware energy solutions to provide the best experience possible while equipping companies, rescue teams, governments and NGOs with the best safety solutions in remote areas.

Smart Solar Media System – Energy Platformย 

The past year our energy experts have devoted their time to developing a Solar Media System that transforms any space into a smart school. Cutting costs from โ‚ฌ120,000 needed to build a school, to a small fraction of โ‚ฌ3500 with a sustainable modular energy system that has integrated media and sound system to turn any place into a smart classroom but with Smart Energy Features!.

The SSMย  also provides an Energy Platform that can locate the SSM System , send SOS alerts to local authorities/NGO HQs to provide security to remote communities, illustrate theย  reduction stats of the CO2 emissions during the project, send alerts when the battery life cycle of the batteries has concluded or when they have an error in order to ensure a replacement is sent on time.

This project was initiated in partnership with one of the largest NGOs, Plan International, and supported by Audi Environmental Foundation and Fingo, allowing this technology to be used in the most rural areas to support and bring digital education to more than 10 countries.

See you at Slush!

If you are heading to Slush this year, feel free to join us at our booth on the 1st December 2021 at Hall 7, stand F2 to check out the best mobile energy solutions or to power your mobile devices at the event. Join us on Thursday 2nd December 2021 at the Huawei Startups Awards.
