The problem

Evidence for the need for alternative energy is provided by the IPCC renewable energy report* on the mitigation of climate change and coping with the effects. The Gensolaria product will fill the gap between large scale, renewable solar and wind resources and smaller experimental, hobby, or do-it-yourself projects.

There are many small-scale solar devices for supplementing energy; however there are very limited small-scale wind energy devices. Moreover there are no devices that combine wind and solar on a manually portable scale, though similar implementations exist for residential purposes.
