Megurogawa Minna no Illumination New Energy Solution by CreativeOut

Home > Winners > #50068


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Megurogawa Minna no Illumination

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
New Energy Solution

INSPIRATION:
The Great East Japan Earthquake happened in 2011 and all Japanese faced many difficulties. The situation was such that during Christmas time Tokyo ignored the issues of the people who were living in the Tohoku district where the earthquake had happened directly. By continuing to light up their holiday lights Tokyo was using their power for unnecessary reasons even when the district of Tohoku didn't have the power to perform basic tasks. This inspired me to come up with this new design.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
We had the Great East Japan Earthquake and the Fukushima nuclear accident happened. Then, we were required to take power saving measures. However, we could see illumination decoration with Christmas business in central Tokyo. So we started to hold an event which allowed us to use the new energy solution. This event was designed to refine waste oil, from households and restaurants where the event was held, into biodiesel fuels to illuminate the area along the Megurogawa river.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The community operated this event with support from the government, donations from regional companies and the waste oil was provided by local residents and restaurants. The event turned out to be a very unifying force in the community.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Our project started from 2011 and has lasted for 7 years. It's exhibited along Megurogawa River in Tokyo, Japan.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The illumination is lit up by about 420,000 LED lights with original color, sakura color.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
-

TAGS:
illumination, energy, local, community

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
We put an end to the debate between natural energy, nuclear energy or petroleum and gave them a new option. We succeeded in enlightening the public to other energy choices. We also proved that it’s possible to produce and consume energy locally. Through our success, others will understand what is possible. Eventually we could create a more prosperous future.
