Creating Self-Sufficient Communities Food Production Energy Efficiency and Resilient Neighborhoods

Off-grid Neighborhoods with renewable energy capabilities, water management and waste-to-resource systems generating surplus energy, water and food that enable self-reliant and resilient neighborhoods in your community.
Self-sufficient Neighborhoods with indoor vegetable, outdoor seasonal gardens and high-tech vertical farms, composted household waste generate their own energy from using a mixture of geothermal, solar, solar thermal, wind, and biomass distributed by a smart grid as well as a biogas plant will turn any non-compostable household waste into power and water.
Integrated Neighborhoods with High-yield Organic Food Production
Advanced Methods for Growing Food such as aquaponics, permaculture, food forests, and high-yield organic farming, grow more food with 90% less water. Organic food from vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes, fish, eggs and chicken year round long as supplementing seasonal gardens fertilized by livestock waste.
Combined Heat and Power involves the recovery of otherwise-wasted thermal energy to produce useful thermal energy or electricity, configured either as a topping or bottoming cycle. It is a form of distributed generation, which is located at or near the energy-consuming facility, whereas conventional generation takes place in large centrally-located power plants. CHP’s inherent higher efficiency and elimination of transmission and distribution losses from the central power plant results in reduced primary energy use and lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
CHP can be utilized in a variety of applications that have significant electric and thermal loads. Eighty-eight percent of existing CHP capacity is found in industrial applications, providing electricity and steam to energy-intensive industries such as chemicals, paper, refining, food processing, and metals manufacturing. CHP in commercial and institutional applications is currently 12 percent of existing capacity, providing electricity, steam, and hot water to hospitals, schools, university campuses, hotels, nursing homes, office buildings and apartment complexes.
Benefits to Your Community CHP reduces emissions of GHGs and other air pollutants by as much as 40 percent or more. It consumes essentially zero water resources in generating electricity and offers a low-cost approach to adding new electricity generation capacity. On-site electric generation reduces grid congestion and improves the reliability of the electricity distribution system and defers the need for investments in new central generating plants, transmission and distribution infrastructure, helping to minimize increases in electricity costs.
