As the world collectively looks for more sustainable ways to generate power, Ecosphere Technologies have found a solution in a shipping container. The shipping container transforms into a pop-up solar power station with the push of a button. 

Called the PowerCube, the container has the solar panels hidden in drawers. When a button is pushed, the panels slide out and start generating energy. 

“It can ship anywhere in the world, whether it’s carried in by air or train or boat, and immediately be providing and storing energy,” said Corey McGuire, director of marketing for Ecosphere Technologies.

The company took seven years to develop PowerCube, which is able to produce up to 400 percent more electricity by simply putting solar panels on the roof.

“This innovative patented solar technology has the potential to be one of the most important solar patented innovations of our generation," said Dean Becker, director and intellectual property strategist for Ecosphere Technologies.

The company added that PowerCube can play a vital part in generating energy for remote villages or after natural disasters.
