Schneider Electric celebrates the bold ideas of women

 October 21, 2021

"We've had the opportunity to grow our own idea, meet talented people across the globe & learn through the process from our amazing mentors," share Helena and Dorothy, winners of global student competition Go Green organized by Schneider Electric. The competition calls for bold ideas to test the boundaries of digital transformation in Energy Management.

Their award-wining sustainable and purpose driven solution is known as the "Light Pill": an artificial light source and ultraviolet water purifier shaped like a bottle cap. The Light Pill is designed to help communities without access to energy and safe water.

Team Light Pills focused on four key differentiators for their product:

  • Sustainability: through recycled materials
  • Feasibility: easy to produce and transport
  • Accessibility: affordable and efficient
  • Versatility: adaptable structure
