Charging terminal using solar energy
Parue leUntil September 30th, in front of the Tourist office, the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès de Cannes offers its clients a charging terminal using solar energy to reload small electronic devices (smart phones, tablets, cameras) and allow WIFI in free access. This new device designed by Advansolar, a company located in Nice, is in line with the sustainable development initiatives in which the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès is involved.
The “phone booth” of the XXIst century
After a test phase of a “mini” version of the device in August, the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès de Cannes chose the SunPod ® Nomad, Outdoor model. This solar charging terminal allows reloading up to 8 mobile devices simultaneously, and gives free WIFI access to surf on the net and of course, visit the web-portal Cannes is Yours. With this weather resistant device, designed in the colors of the Palais, visitors, tourists and congress participants can extend their experience of the city, using digital modes. Connected urban furniture is currently booming, transforming user practices regarding events, but also city life. So, London transforms its legendary red phone booths into a connected SolarBox, and Dubai sees its “Smart Palms” (solar WIFI spots shaped like palm trees) growing fast. At the heart of international innovation, the Tourist office of Cannes experiences this now ending summer the SunPod ® Nomad, particularly adapted to the sunny climate of the French Riviera.
