An Italian company has developed a compact solution for communities that lack access to clean drinking water and electricity – the OffGridBox. Measuring 6x6x6 feet, the container cube features everything necessary to generate, convert and store solar energy, as well as collect, treat and distribute clean drinking water. But the system does have drawbacks – including a $15,000 price point that’s hard to justify in certain corners of the world. Read on to learn how the founders are trying to scale their innovative solution for maximum impact.
According to Fast Company, “Founder and CEO Emiliano Cecchini has sold a few of the units, but he worries he’s not yet found the formula to take his invention to scale.” “We’re looking for the next system to scale,” Cecchini told FastCo. “The idea came three years ago and, yeah, we’re kind of struggling to make it bigger. Back in Italy, it’s not easy to find the right financing strategy, mentors, and accelerator programs.”
