Faas Moonen is an Associate Professor at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in the Netherlands. He is the initiator of the GEM-tower. GEM-tower is an eye-catching tower that is developed to produce power from sustainable resources. This tall and very colourful tower clearly stands out from a festival to help in increasing awareness of the sustainability of a festival. GEM-tower has been tested at over 10 events in the last year.
GEM-tower promotes the use of sustainable energy by combining a wind turbine, several types of solar panels, and a large battery. GEM-tower is the result of a European funded project in which 10 international partners work together who bring in the latest developments in renewable energy production, storage and distribution
