The Kyocera Corporation has launched an innovative, colourful website, designed to educate visitors about the benefits of solar power to our environment.
According to PV Tech, the interactive web design will entice children and adults alike, giving them the experience of attending an exposition regarding solar power. Split into five different areas, named ‘pavilions’, the website covered the history of solar power and how it has, and will continue to help the environmental problems facing planet earth.
‘Saving the earth’, the first pavilion, introduces visitors to the site and gives an overview of the issues facing our world; whilst the second focuses on the sun, including its make-up.
Sun-related drawings and paintings from kids throughout the world make up pavilion three, and the fourth contains various diagrams demonstrating how solar energy can be converted into electricity. Lastly, ‘Our solution’ makes up the fifth pavilion.
This last pavilion describes how Kyocera is developing its company to help the greater good, establishing its environmental and corporate social responsibility commitments. Although the site has previously been received warmly in other areas, particularly by the Japanese audience, it is the first time an English-language version has been released.
According to Solar Industry Magazine, the comprehensive and fun-to-use website was designed with the intention of visitors taking something away from the experience – perhaps going on to investigate how they can help others achieve a better future for the earth.
Kyocera was established in 1975, with the precise aim of preserving our planet in order to benefit the greater mankind. Working since then to share its message with the world, the corporation continues to develop activities aimed at environmental protection.
