We agree Eldy, PowerHYDE would be appropriate for Indonesia too. PowerHYDE has been designed by billionBricks, headquartered in Singapore. So we are just across the straits.

Dear Prerna,
We understand that the problem of renting out homes occurs in urban areas. This is also prevalent amongst slum dwellers and not street homeless. In rural areas the rental market is too small and not lucrative enough to give up home and be on the street.

Dear Kate,
We are finished with concept design and business strategy. We have also had community meetings at one of the potential location in India (Konchur, Karnataka) and have gathered feedback from a community in Cambodia, where first house prototypes were tested (without solar cells). Feedback has been positive and the learnings have been incorporated. We are currently in talks with engineering and construction firms to finalise on costs and execution strategy. We are also in talks with government in India to finalise the location.
We plan to finish Phase 1 of 60 homes by August 2018.
