Invented by 27-year-old Carvey Ehren Maigue, a student at Mapúa University in the Philippines, the AuREUS system is an evolution for walls/windows, which utilizes technology synthesized from upcycled crop waste to absorb stray UV light from sunlight and convert it to clean renewable electricity. 
The system champions the issues of UV sequestration, better access to solar energy for climate change mitigation, and supporting the local agriculture industry hit by calamities by upcycling crops that would otherwise be considered wastes, thereby mitigating farmers’ loss.
The 2020 James Dyson Award for sustainability was given to Maigue for his AuREUS system, which uses the natural scientific principles behind the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, hence the name.
