We power your business

A solid and reliable power supply is the backbone of any commercial activity and community development. The modular design of the power supply scheme in the NEXUS Centers allows an easy scalability. The basic package includes only relative small amounts of free power to sell. If the commercial activities grow in the community, the power supply can be increased by adding more power modules. If the demand is big enough, even the establishment of a micro-grid system is possible. The power can be generated by solar- and/or wind power, by waste-to-energy technologies or hydropower installations depending on the local conditions. Grid power or generators can be included as backup systems as well.

The NEXUS center intend to provide power to commercial activities/entrepreneurs and not to individual households. The energy supply is 100% renewable.

Water: the fuel of life

A safe source of drinking water is essential for every human being on this planet. Unfortunately, not all human beings do have access to a safe source of drinking water. Many need to rely on contaminated or unreliable sources causing a lot of health issues but also economic and social problems. One of the core services which each NEXUS center offers is the supply of safe drinking water. By having access to a vast portfolio of drinking water purification technologies, we can offer in almost any location a suitable treatment method to purify the raw water to healthy drinking water, meeting at least the WHO regulations. By engineering the technical applications as sustainable as possible, we reduce the impact on the environment to the maximum. All our solutions are designed individually according to the local conditions and are powered 100% by renewable energy supply.

Additionally, every NEXUS Center features toilet facilities which are used not only for the guests and the employees of the hub, but shall also be used as a role model for activities in the sanitation and hygiene sector.
