Title: Solar LED Lanterns for the Replacement of Kerosene in the Developing World
This University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign team will demonstrate to large investors the viability of light emitting diode (LED) lanterns by designing and creating simple, rugged, and low-cost solar LED lanterns. The lantern will produce a small but useful amount of light, allowing for a sustainable, inexpensive power-supply.
