Solar Flower on Car

The “solar flower” developed by ASU electrical engineer Joseph Hui could be used to power an electrical vehicle.

Joseph Hui’s mission is to help solar power go mobile. He’s developed a retractable “solar flower” that could power an electric vehicle or be easily transported for generating power almost anywhere. It’s one of several ideas – either in design or prototype stages – he has for advances in portable energy technology.

Hui is a professor in the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy engineering, one of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University.

He has also established a company – based at ASU SkySong/The ASU Scottsdale Innovation Center – to work on plans for production of portable solar-power devices and has set up a foundation to help make the technology affordable and available to people around the world.

His ventures recently attracted attention from a writer for a business news publication. Read the article about Hui’s ventures in the Phoenix Business Journal.
