Solar powered World Energy Art installation


My project is a solar powered art installation that uses LEDs strategically placed on a world map to show the different energy sources of various countries around the world.
The LCD screen lights up in sequence with the different colored leds to display the color correlation.
The blue leds represent hydro-power plants,
yellow leds represent solar power stations,
green for biomass
red represents oil use as an energy source.

I plan to include more leds of different colors to represent more energy sources for example wind energy, fossil fuels and geothermal. I also plan to add a distance sensor to the project to only turn it on when a person comes close to the project.
