The Twig Light: wood burning power for off-grid communities

Another NCIIA E-Team company to watch...

The team behind the Twig Light, a project from Arizona State University, has formed Daylight Solutions, LLC, to move the technology towards market. Michael Pugliese, a mechanical engineering technology graduate student, designed the sustainable lighting technology last spring in response to Ghanaian villagers’ requests for lights. The Twig Light is a wood-powered flashlight that also might have application as a mobile phone charger (photo by Brian McCollow).
