Comments from Organizer

If you can combine wind power generation and photovoltaic generation with this at non-powered community like a dessert area and supply the stable electric power. Establishment at an urban area is possible because the volume and the mass are compact, and it'll be also the emergency power supply when the electricity goes out. This innovative high-capacity power storage system would make it possible to the variety that it was not impossible so far.
