Urban Oasis is an award winning environmental installation designed to demonstrate sustainable energy production within an oasis for city dwellers. It is environmentally sustainable and adaptable for different locations and uses.
It is powered by a hydrogen fuel cell, with photovoltaic petals which open in response to the sun, utilizing light to generate power. Supplemented power from a hydrogen fuel cell and wind turbine, and the use of harvested rainwater for irrigation and cooling, make it self-sufficient. At night the entire structure is transformed into a light sculpture.
The installation provides a haven for the weary city worker. It is a self-funded R&D project that has travelled around Europe as an educational installation.
