Since our last call for makers on May 9th, we got a lot of visibility locally and abroad. On the other hand, this kind of visibility requires us a lot of commitment. This is the reason why we tirelessly engage to keep it alive as much as possible. Along this way, our last commitment was about the Italian Festival EcoFuturo, the most important national eco-sustainable technologies show. We will participate to the Festival EcoFuturo and we will be there on September 1st, with a panel discussion about “The mobility” and with a two hours tutorial about “iaiaGi project and the eco-sustainable/fair trade electric vehicles mobility”. On September 2nd, we will support and collaborate with our partner association “Tempo di Vivere”, which will participate to the panel discussion about “Live and dwell” and will present its tutorial about “Tempo di Vivere Ecovillage – open source ThermoCompost”.
You are all invited to be there on the first two days of September to sustain our efforts and to get in direct contact with our team.
Festival EcoFuturo countdown started!
Last Thursday we had a great opportunity to arrange an interview with one lucky Tesla Model S electric car driver, Chris Heerius.
Chris is Managing Director at Jaga, a worldwide class company producing heating readiator solutions for large buldings.
Besides the enthusiastic description of the Tesla Model S driving experience, this interview delivers a message about lifestyle focused on sustainability and environmental quality improvement, which are indeed among the fundamental principles upon which iaiaGi project is developing.
In the past three weeks, we spent most of our time preparing an official presentation of iaiaGi project. Today, we are ready to publish the result of our efforts. We hope this document may help you better understand what we are doing and where we want to go. We believe that a good communication is at the base of a proper understanding of the project, helps us catching your attention, and we hope also your active support to the project as well.
As mentioned in the January 21st, 2015 post “Project defined, off we go”, during these four weeks, we worked on the choice of the vehicle to be converted, according to the list of 10 candidates cars published in the wiki. We first aimed to identify what were the necessary technical information to make a mechanical dimensioning of each model in the list using the Excel spreadsheet published to GitHub. At this purpose we built a table that allowed us to properly collect these information for each model of choice. Once we completed the information collection, which required several Internet searches, we moved to the analysis of the collected data stage.
Those who project their future with visionary and aggressive attitude, do not just wait for the conditions of an unavoidable future to realize: they rather influence the present to anticipate them.
This is indeed a sign of great foresight and habit to think forward, which are winners’ prerogatives.
It is surely such attitude lying behind the Tesla Motors “Supercharger” deployment, a futuristic EV recharge area, right here in Modena.
The long time since last post to this blog was published, wasn’t really an inactive time. Quite the opposite!
After the project was officially kicked-off in July, with a clear definition of objectives and technical approach, we entered in that phase where one has to plan for the actions, that is, to decide how the endeavour, its design, its techical solutions and its timeline will be handled.
We are officially starting the open source project for the realization of the universal conversion kit of a traditional car in an electric vehicle. Several weeks have past since we have launched our website and finally I am posting the first part of the project.
