Best Ideas 2019 features all the nominated entries submitted under ‘Submit your Idea’ category. All the entries consist of innovative solutions or propositions for an enterprise that champions the Sustainable Development Goals. They can be on the conceptual, planning, or start-up stage.
Explain your idea in details:
Green waves is a device that is connected between the antenna and the television and it converts the electromagnetic waves that the antenna is constantly receiving into electricity. We think that everyone has to have at least the possibility of using ecological sources of energy, but to do that we need a new source of energy, that doesn't require large investments and uses low-price technology. The good thing about Green Waves is that produces electricity using cheap technology, its production is constant, it can be used anywhere in the world, and all of this in a clean and ecological way. Also, we want you to notice that this technology could be used for many other purposes and devices, so this is just one of the multiple uses that can be given to this technology.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Green waves is, as we've said before, a device that produces electricity in a cheap way everywhere, anytime and in a clean way. Thanks to that, people all around the world could be interested in buying it, because: who doesn't want to produce electricity in their home, saving money at the time they reduce carbon dioxide emissions? This technology is meant to be used for powering electronic devices at home, like Smartphones. This means that we don't think this technology can power an entire house (although we don't know it for sure, we will need to investigate and experience). Green waves could be used by lots of people (because, just as a reminder, it is economically affordable for everyone), so it has many potential clients all around the globe. Our objective is to make a difference, especially in the field of energy production; and if we make it (even if it's very little) thanks to this technology, it will be a success for us. So, the more used our devices are, the nearest we will be to our (and lots of other people's) target. One person using Green Waves won't change the world, but millions of people using it, will.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
1.Value proposition: Produce electricity in an ecological way, do it in a different way, spend little money doing it, transform electromagnetic waves into electricity. 2.Key activities: Improve green waves, searching new ways to apply this technology, investigate new sources of energy. 3.Audience segments: Everyone all over the world that has an antenna and wants to decrease carbon dioxide emissions. 4.Distribution channels: Large online shopping platforms, our web, we bring our product using shipping enterprises. 5.Key resources: An investigation place, a place with machines for building this device, materials for doing it, workers, economical resources. 6.Audience relationships: Digitally. 7.Key partners: Material enterprises, shipping enterprises, online shopping platforms, Ecological enterprises and organisations. 8.Cost structure: Building the products, paying our workers, maintenance of the premises. 9.Revenue stream: Selling of Green Waves.
My name is Jan, I am 16 years old, and I'm currently studying. I like very much science and technology. I have been always very interested in thinking and searching solutions for actual problems. Last year I was finalist with my group in a national contest about innovative Smartphone applications: the mSchools Student Awards, with the application Help Them. I went to a fair, to expose and present our application in English. This year I have been selected also to go on a teaching program, Joves i ciencia. Joves i ciencia is a program about science that lasts three years and it allows to young students to do investigations in national and international universities and counts with scientific investigators than will help me to write a scientific article. This idea, Green Waves, was presented as a project in Repte Empren, a national entrepreneurship contest, and it was a finalist on it. Because of this, I went with my partners to an entrepreneurship campus in which teach us, for example, how to define our business model and how to present an idea to public and investors, doing an elevator pitch. I presented this idea to the contest with four more people, but they actually cannot work on it because, although they want to, they don't have the time to do it. I count on them because I know that in a short period of time they will join me again. So I'm not alone doing this, we are five people.
