Who is SolaRoofGuy?

On January 5, 2010, in General, by PM100

As a quick introduction I would describe myself as an inventor, and from early age, in the mid 1960’s, I found I could envision a very different world than the one I see around me. Especially I was unhappy with the urban environment and sought to find a way of living that is not cut off from nature but that draws natural energy into our daily life. My vision is that our dwellings will be living systems; a sun space where we would be constantly refreshed and sustained by creation itself.

I do not see the benefit of the short sighted race to consume all the resources of the planet, while living separated from nature in our “grey zone” urban sprawl cities. And in addition, I am not enthused by conventional agriculture and find the solutions for food production that are currently practiced to be part of the problem. As an alternative, I was drawn into the idea that a transparent structure could become a dwelling that would provide natural, ecological life support and so I worked to create a controlled environment that would be a “garden home” and which would utilize solar energy efficiently.

Thus I spent my entire life developing the technical capabilities and innovations necessary to construct such an efficient “solar controlled environment” that would be literally a living space, which is capable of supplying energy, food, water and a refreshing atmosphere in which to live, work and play. Lacking the means to build a truly organic structure, I found that the Biomimicry Architecture and technology I was developing was useful to the commercial greenhouse industry and of interest to the emerging solar industry, and so I gradually developed the SolaRoof technology, building many SolaRoof projects over the last 30 years.

Now I have a “social enterprise” that is called Life Synthesis and we have Manufacturing in Malaysia and a Knowledge & Apps enterprise in Norway. From these global centers we intend to establish a global cooperative business network – see Life Synthesis Manifesto. Commercial supply of SolaRoof solutions will start-up in 2010 and we also expect much more GrassRoots activity with global DIY and sustainable development projects in Africa.

We have a Wiki and a Yahoo Group and are active on Social Networks – just search for solaroof – and start more discussions anywhere on the web – solaroof is a healing solution for most of the problems we face as we transition to BUILDING to a sustainable future.
