Ecocapsule New way of sustainable living

This is a great week for Renewable Now.  One of our radio guest from this summer, Igor Zarcek, CEO of Ecocapsule and award-winning designer and architect, is in from Slovakia and part of a panel of experts who will help us broadcast, live across the globe on Thursday, a major event, Building a Sustainable Future.  

Two other talented designers will join Igor on a panel of experts to showcase their work in creating work and living space that is efficient, generally off the grid and resistant to extreme weather conditions.  My co-host, Ken Filarski is a talented architect and Executive Director of the RI Chapter of the US Green Building Council.  Great line up and we'll have with us a large worldwide audience.

None of that matters, though, if you don't listen, learn and apply these same standards to your life and imagine living a more efficient, cleaner style.  Our goal is to educate, inform and inspire change.  We hope you tune in and join us on Twitter as well.

All about Ecocapsule 



Imagine. A warm mountain cabin in the great outdoors.A beach cabana on a remote island.A quiet studio in the countryside.A geeky hotel pod near your house. A spot for your loud teenager… Imagine an opportunity to getaway and enjoy an authentic life in nature.

WHAT IS THE ECOCAPSULE?

The Ecocapsule is an opportunity for an eco-life. It does not need to be plugged into the traditional power and water supply as it is self-sustaining and can generate both resources from the surrounding environment.
Officially, the Ecocapsule is a compact mobile home which can enable off-grid living under specific conditions and in specific environments.
Legal note: the Ecocapsule is designed for extended off-grid living for up to a year* for 1 – 2 people. (*This is dependent on various geographic and local conditions. Exact user manual will be provided.)

WHERE CAN I GET THE ECOCAPSULE?

Right here on this website. We offer three options:
Ecocapsule first generation (limited edition): only 50 units will be produced which can be exclusively customized to each owner’s requirements.
Ecocapsule second generation: will be available for general sale in 2017.
Bulk / custom orders

WHAT ELSE CAN I GET?

We see the Ecocapsule as a platform for innovation and encourage designers to create products specifically for the capsule, such as furniture, safety or power systems, efficient storage units and so on. If your design or product meets Ecocapsule’s quality criteria, we will endorse it.
We also have a small merchandising section on our website where you order souvenirs and help us realize the Ecocapsule dream. And we’re planning an e-shop that will sell supplies for the Ecocapsule – it will be open in the near future so stay tuned …

CAN I CONNECT THE ECOCAPSULE TO AN EXTERNAL POWER AND WATER SUPPLY?

Yes, of course. The Ecocapsule has the best possible shape for collecting rainwater and minimizing thermal losses. The Ecocapsule is also capable of efficient power generation(up to 1.35 kW installed power)and storage (10 kW battery pack as default option). In most locations these external sources of water and electricity will not be necessary however you can use Ecocapsule connected to grids as well.

CAN I REALLY PUT THE ECOCAPSULE ANYWHERE?

The Ecocapsule does not require a building permit but you may need permission from the landowner or relevant authority, depending on where you choose to locate it. We absolutely recommend you check with your local authority and/or check your country’s or region’s regulations in this respect.
