:: Large-scale mobile PV chargers (2016-2019): R&D, product development
To expand their usage, we explored the PV chargers potential for designers and makers. It turned out into creating many of 3D-printed designs digitally using solar energy and sometimes really sitting on the beach.
Solar energy chargers for cell phones and tablets (2012-2014): brand development, production, distribution
:: In 2014, we supplied a portion of our sundwich chargers to support Ukraine's people in Eastern part of the country (Donetsk) protecting their homes in terms Russia's hybrid war.
On June 5th, 2009, an extraordinary event unfolded on the Dnipro River in Ukraine, which proved to be a pivotal moment in the history of renewable energy. This singular event, which was the brainchild of Julia and her partner, set in motion a wave of change that rippled across Europe, leaving a profound impact on the pace of the energy transition, clean tech acceptance, and the adoption of legislation supporting further renewable energy industry development.
The event was the launch of a motor ship fueled entirely by biofuel. More than 120 people participated in this groundbreaking event.
In the wake of this landmark event, legislative changes were promptly implemented in Ukraine, heralding a new era of green energy development. Over the next decade, Ukraine rapidly emerged as one of the top 15 countries in the world with the most advanced renewable energy industry.
In 2009, a pivotal moment in Ukraine's renewable energy transition took place when the Ukrainian House in downtown Kyiv was powered by renewables for the very first time.
Julia, a renowned brand owner and leader in the sustainable energy industry of Central and Eastern Europe, spearheaded the initiative to connect the Ukrainian House to a mobile PV plant and a small wind generator during the Ukrainian Renewable Energy Forum, the premier business event of the sustainable energy industry in Ukraine. This achievement marked a significant milestone in Ukraine's journey towards a more sustainable future, inspiring further growth and development in the renewable energy sector.
In 2011, Julia and her team in Innovative Business Centre conceived and launched ECOSMART, an International CleanTech Business Forum and trade show. The event featured prominent speakers, including the former executive secretary of UN Climate Change (UNFCCC) from 2006-2010, who later became a key climate adviser for KPMG. While the forum focused on celebrating sustainability and clean technologies beyond renewables, such as watertech, wastetech, and green investments, it attracted a significant number of international participants.
One major challenge was to address the environmental impact of the event, including the emissions associated with flights and other conference-related activities. To address this issue, Julia's team calculated the CO2 emissions and took steps to offset them. For instance, they planted a tree garden in the backyard of a nearby school in downtown.
These efforts paid off when ECOSMART won the "Event Awards" as the Best International Event held in Ukraine. Despite the challenges, Julia and her team managed to create an impactful event that brought together leaders and innovators in the clean tech industry while also demonstrating their commitment to sustainability.
These changes were implemented in 2015 and opened the market for thousands of householders in Ukraine. Since then, solar energy became a tool to develop a middle class in the country, as enabled passive income for householders who installed PV systems. Another project, co-initiated and managed by Julia, Solar Academy, during over a decade educated entrepreneurs, engineers and householders to operate in the solar energy market, install, launch and operate PV systems.
Julia Daviy, as cleantech company founder, was approached by the founder of the Ukrainian Fashion Week, Iryna Danilevska in the beginning of 2012, as for the first time, the organizers were considering addressing sustainability questions.
Julia's team came up with the idea to tackle the water quality issue in the Kyiv region by finding a village with the worst water quality.
Julia's team fully implemented the project, which involved installing a water purification system in a local school in the village of Revne, attracting a water purification equipment supplier, and even bringing celebrities to the village.
The project was aimed at solving social and environmental problems in rural Ukraine and was implemented during the Ukrainian Fashion Week.
The water in this village exceeded the norms for iron, manganese, and ammonia, and was 34 times more turbid than normal drinking water. The successful implementation of the project addressed this issue for the local community and highlighted the social responsibility of the fashion industry.
Julia decided to implement this project and saw this water challenge as an opportunity to showcase the cleantech solutions made in Ukraine, and invited to join the challenge the participants of Green Awards Ukraine, the premier green business and social project competition, she founded earlier.
The team's hard work and dedication made the project a success and demonstrated the power of individuals and companies to drive positive change in society.
