Terraintegra is an independent socio-environmental organisation that addresses the forces that threaten to unbalance the planet and deplete its resources. The Terraintegra Foundation is a not for profit entity responsible for the realisation and implementation of Terraintegra’s strategy.
Partnering with scientists and engineers, Terraintegra deploys ‘true alternative energy production’ and ‘true energy conservation’ technologies which at all levels, macro to micro, help keep pace with accelerating energy requirements without increasing pressure on the planet’s resources or its equilibrium.
Of equal importance, Terraintegra seeks to equalise access to planet energy and resources for all of its 7 billion consumers, so that the 21st Century will redress the inequality of access to energy which prevailed in the 20th Century.
Terraintegra’s socio-environmental philosophy is described in its conceptual document the Eco-Village Project. This paper sets out the socio-environmental arguments for viable long-term resource management within a community. It also describes practical solutions to energy needs including the deployment of various complementary technologies, enabling energy production or energy conservation within the community. A natural extension of this strategy involves the design and development of low cost transport, the Eridanos Project. These projects are applicable to any community around the globe, although currently targeted at the needs of developing nations.
