Jegan Vincent de Paul - Community Grid Project

Jegan Vincent de Paul is a second-year graduate student in the MIT Visual Arts Program. His current work deals with global energy access. With a background in architecture, Vincent de Paul has worked with Lot-ek, New York and Ai Wei Wei, Beijing. Project collaborators (UROPs Rachel Cheney and Jennifer Tran, and CMS graduate student Jason Rockwood) will also be present. The Community Grid Project envisions a novel utilization of advances in ultracapacitor technology: using human labor to close the gap between communities with access to energy resources and those without, through the physical transport of personal ultracapacitors. Human labor and capacitors are combined to bring essential levels of energy to everyone.
