Hello friends of innovation!


SDG 13 tells us to take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts. You can say a lot about that, but we have to reduce our carbon food print, for starters. We need to be self sufficient in a lot of ways. That’s where we focus on in this newsletter. If we want to go off grid we need to produce our own energy, food and water. What are the gadgets and tools that can help us? 


Turn every structure in an electrified home 

Of course going off grid starts with energy. To light our homes, to power our gadgets, to heat our environment. The BioLite SolarHome 620 is a portable pack for lightning, charging and music. Thanks to this simple setup you can turn every structure in an electrified home. Thanks to the included FM radio you’ve got always music too!

Using the energy of streaming water

We all know that the water in a reservoir behind a hydropower dam is potential energy. The stored energy in the reservoir is converted into kinetic energy (motion) as the water flows down a large pipe and spins a turbine. Waterotor uses the power of streaming water too. Easy to implement wherever there is streaming water. No big dams needed, a small river will do.
