Can Okra Solar Pods Change the Future of Energy Access? | Autodesk Fusion 360

Could the Internet of Things (IoT) bring electricity to the more than 700 million people who still live without power and provide it in the most unconnected, remote areas of the world? That’s what Okra Solar is setting out to accomplish.

Removing the barrier of physical infrastructure, Okra Solar brings together IoT and modular solar power mesh grids for “last-mile” energy projects. The team installs roof-mounted solar panels using geospatial analysis to determine the optimum placement for energy production. Instead of the costly extension of a traditional grid, Okra Solar’s decentralized approach can provide electricity at a fraction of the cost. The company’s plan is to have two million people connected to clean, affordable power by 2025.

The core of their solution is in the hardware. The Okra Solar Pod was designed with Autodesk Fusion 360, and it manages and distributes the power supply. It’s installed in each household and works 24/7 to ensure energy is redistributed in the mesh grid. In turn, this guarantees reliable power for everyone.

We caught up with Oscar Aitchison, product manager for Mesh Grid at Okra Solar, at Autodesk University 2022 to discuss Okra Solar’s Autodesk Excellence Award-winning work.
