Sleepbreeze at STAR-TIDES
Sleepbreeze was well represented at the STAR-TIDES autumn exhibition at Fort Leslie J. McNair in Washington D.C. in early October. Managing Director, Andy Buxton attended the exhibition and was on hand to demonstrate the Sleepbreeze and discuss it's numerous benefits to a variety of distinguished visitors from the US Military and NGOs. There was universal praise for the Sleepbreeze and serious enquiries which are being followed up.
The Sleepbreeze's small size, low weight, effectiveness and energy efficiency were all admired.
STAR-TIDES is about getting people with solutions in front of those people with problems. It is not about delivering "Meals Ready to Eat" (MREs) to disaster victims. There are many established and effective organisations doing this already.
"STAR-TIDES is all about offering appropriate, affordable technical solutions to problems faced by populations in disaster zones. These include, solar power generation, water purificaition, solar cookers, shelters, waste treatment, communications, lighting, heating and cooling.", said Andy. "The Sleepbreeze offers the best cooling solution for those situations where resources such as energy and water are at a premium."
The STAR-TIDES team presented a number of scenarios, ranging from individual family unit size up to large encampments, demonstrating different technologies for each. Different geographical zones were also considered, including Continental US, Africa and Afghanistan.
Many of the team are actively involved with relief efforts in these areas.
"We're proud to be involved in this effort and to support STAR-TIDES as it develops and matures.", concluded Andy.
