Potential energies

About

Using water evaporation and composting to create natural cooling and warming systems

Potential Energies aims to explore new ways of generating energy, revealing potential sources already present around us. The project takes form in two objects. The first is a natural limestone air cooler based on the principle of evaporative cooling. Slats of limestone are crossed by water, which consumes heat as it evaporates on the surface of the rock. Its modular design allows to create natural coolers of different capacity. The second is a low-temperature cooking oven, leveraging the heat emitted by compost. The oven has been tested by cooking food that is vacuumed and then inserted into the oven in contact with the hot compost.
