Inspired by Nikola Tesla's vision, which he described as early as 1900:
"It is our duty to coming generations to leave this store of energy intact for them, or at least not to touch it until we shall have perfected processes for burning coal more efficiently. We should be able to manufacture the iron we require by using the sun`s energy; without wasting any coal at all ". The majority of current reporting on solar is related to technical innovations, carbon balances and statistical data. In contrast, Solar Habitat is dedicated to the discourse of opposing poles in order to generate new input and new knowledge in the current ecological debate.
