2 billion people in the world have no access to electricity. The project "Charging the Autarky" responds to this gap with a technical solution. The design is a standalone, modular, solar-powered lighting system. A photovoltaic box charges the basic element of the design, the battery. This can then be connected to various modules on both sides. Three light modules differ in the light angle and the light range. The sub-modules allow different positions of the lights.
