Sustainable Product Design & Development

ECODWELL Ventures focuses on quick deployment in urban, remote, and disaster-prone areas through designing and developing sustainable products. Going through a line of multiple green technology features and functionality into one single design, these products have low carbon footprint and is self-sustaining.

Mobile & Modular Response Unit (MMU)

The Sustainable Mobile & Modular Response Unit (MMU) is a mobile and modular response unit intended to use as a temporary logistics site for police and army troops during ground operations. Powered by solar energy and water harvested through rainwater, each MMU is self-sustaining and convenient as to carry all the necessaries for a comfortable resting environment. In addition to that, it can also be converted into a larger space and shifted to a new location to be reuse. With easy mobilization and maintenance, each unit can accommodate up to 8 people.

Green Intelligent Design (GriD) Home

GRiD or Green Intelligent Design is fully modular and mobile (fully foldable) and is self-sustaining (powered by solar energy, rainwater and eco-toilet) making it the ideal solution to a global problem.

Based on the blueprint prepared by McKinsey, the projected cost to provide 330 million households worldwide with affordable housing is USD16 trillion. This can be solved through improving access to land, reducing the construction cost to a target of USD150 per square meters, increasing efficiency of newly built houses and reduction of financial cost to buyers. The GRiD Home is highly efficient and was developed at a cost of USD166 per square meter with additional value-added sustainable features. Due to the highly modular, mobile, and self-sustaining design of the GRiD Home, it can be placed at temporary land locations before a permanent land ownership solution is reached.

GRiD Home features

The existing solution to the affordable home problem implements IBS methods in constructing the homes. Although IBS promotes prefabrication off-site to reduce construction waste and provide an efficient way in constructing various external fabrics of the home, its lack of modularity and mobility makes it unsuitable as a solution to affordable housing. Furthermore, existing construction companies adopting IBS still rely heavily in infrastructure preparation for housing development, making its construction cost high and beyond reach of the target set by McKinsey. This is essentially an open loop system. The GRiD Home on the other hand offers a closed loop approach in innovative affordable housing solutions. Its highly modular, mobile, and self-sustainable design offers a wide range of options to the occupants on how they can customize the house external and internal to suit their geographical location and style of living.

Known for their thoughtful and carefully planned spaces, many houses are efficient with innovative, space-saving solutions into their small footprints. From layouts that incorporate lofted spaces to furniture that is either multifunctional or easy to store. The high-quality design makes up what tiny homes lack in.


Frequently Asked Questions

  • Any commercial site with TNB tariff code B, C1 AND C2.
  • Any industrial site with TNB tariff code D, E1, E2 AND E3.
  • Any agricultural site with TNB tariff code H.
  • A typical investor (RPVI) will invest on a site with a minimum 50kwp installation.
  • This is equivalent to an installation area of 230 m2 (approximately 2,300[2]
  • This is equivalent to minimum bill amount of RM 3,000.00 per month under tariff code B
  • The PPA duration is anywhere between 21 to 25 years;
  • A shorter PPA can be negotiated between the site owner and the RPVI on case per case basis
  • The solar PV system will be handed over to the site owner at no cost; OR
  • The site owner can opt to continue the concession under a new PPA
  • There will be a novation clause in the PPA that transfers the asset to the new owner.
  • The original owner may opt to purchase the solar PV system at the agreed price calculated based on balance cost of the system during the tenured (seling) year.
  • The original owner may opt to cancel the agreement. Should this be the case, a penalty clause apply that includes costs to remove the solar PV system from the site and corresponding logistics.
  • Yes, You will need to get a written consent from the sute owner allowing for the installation of the solar PV system on the premise; you will also need to show documentation of tenancy agreement of long lease of the site with the owner.
  • No. You will get one electricity bill under the program.
  • The bill will detail the consumption of solar energy in which the payment is calculated using the discounted solar tariff. The bill will also detail the consumption of energy from the TNB grid that is calculated using the normal tariff (based on code).
  • Yes. The solar energy harvested will provide energy to electricity consumed for the common area usage. The solar energy harvested does not cover individual residential electricity usage.
  • Yes, if the land has ongoing business or agriculture activity that consumes electricity from TNB
  • No, if the land is empty with no ongoing business or agriculture activity that consumes electricity from TNB.
  • Two agreement. First agreement is a tripartite agreement between RPVI, Site owner and TNB to allow TNB to collect payment on behalf of the RPVI.
  • Second agreement is the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) between site owner and the RPVI detailing the terms and conditions of the 21 years concession program.
  • Yes. Site will still get electricity supply from TNB as the solar power will only be supplied during the day.
  • Site will obtain power from TNB during the night an dduring times where the site consumes more energy than the solar energy can supply.
  • All on going maintenance and insurance will be fully paid by the RPVI during the whole duration of the concession.
  • Site owner and RPVI will need to work out a schedule for maintenance work.
  • Solar PV system maintenance will be done twice yearly with maintenance covering cleaning and checking of the system and structures.
  • Insurance cover for damage of solar PV system, roof and public liability.
  • Site owner will enjoy up to 20% discounted tariff based on the solar energy harvested. For a tariff code B, this equates to a discount of up to RM 0.10/kWp per month.
  • This can equal up to 20% in financial savings from the monthly TNB bill.
  • The discounted tariff offered will stand for the whole duration of the concession and will not be subjected to any tariff hike.
