Environmental issues are causing significant changes in our lives, and we must always be prepared to address them.
Raised under the influence of environmentally conscious elders, Darren has grown up with a strong commitment to sustainability. At the age of 27, he works at an energy storage company in the United States. When discussing his career choice, he attributes it to a sense of social responsibility that drives him to take on this mission. Darren shares that he used to engage in business consulting projects with clean energy companies during school, seeking ways to collaborate on various renewable energy initiatives with his institution. While in school, Darren even established the Brandeis Impact Club, aiming to further propagate the concept of renewable energy. His goal was to educate more alumni about the significance of renewable energy and raise awareness about the global shifts affecting our lives, underscoring the need to be prepared.
In the United States, most indoor spaces are equipped with central air conditioning systems, and even many homes employ energy-consuming window air conditioners. During hot summers, Darren often found classes uncomfortably warm due to the use of central air conditioning. One of his predecessors, a Ph.D. in aerodynamics, was particularly interested in studying air ducts. He tirelessly sought the best solution to address issues of uneven and insufficient cooling from the central air conditioning system in classrooms. Ultimately, despite numerous attempts at improvements, he realized that energy efficiency wasn't being achieved, and in some cases, even worsened.
One day, while browsing on Amazon, Darren unexpectedly came across AICE 3. Having never heard of a neck air conditioner before, he felt that this was a product that opened up new possibilities, prompting him to make a purchase with a curious mindset. To his amazement, he discovered that wearing it indoors provided much stronger cooling than the central air conditioning system. As someone who is particularly sensitive to heat, Darren was impressed that AICE 3 managed to maintain a refreshing temperature even outdoors.
Subsequently, he recommended this product to his predecessors and friends, hoping to help them address their cooling needs during the summer. "It's really energy-efficient. Just a few hours of charging can result in long-lasting performance. Coming from an energy storage background, I feel like I've discovered this product a bit too late," he said.
