The Solar Butterfly
UWB will welcome a team of Swiss promoters of renewable energy led by Louis Palmer, originally a teacher who fifteen years ago traveled around the world in a compact solar-powered car. The university in Pilsen is one of three stops by the Solar Butterfly in the Czech Republic.
Intended for: students, employees, public
The Larso Solar Butterfly is a tiny house with a kitchen, toilet, shower, air-conditioning and six beds. While traveling, it looks like an ordinary RV, but by the press of a button it transforms into a butterfly with wings covered in light-weight solar panels, the sheer size of which provides enough solar power to recharge the batteries. Thanks to this feature, Larso can cover as much as 300km per day entirely without any emissions.
It will be on display at UWB's Bory campus between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. and from 1 p.m. to at least 4.30 p.m., and members of the Swiss team will be ready to provide information and answer questions from visitors.
Apart from that, from 10 a.m.–12 p.m., lecture hall EP 110 in the Faculty of Electrical Engineering will host a workshop on renewable energy sources for high school and university students, teachers and the general public.
