A closed-loop system for living off-grid

Hubvance is an off-grid system that provides the basic and fundamental resources needed by every community: food, water and electricity. The system integrates three elements in one container: an aquaponic cultivation system for food production, a panel that condenses air humidity into water and photovoltaic panels that generate electricity. All three are carefully balanced to create a circular and symbiotic environment, in which all resources are generated sustainably and in perpetuity.
