is a Research & Development laboratory that has developed a range of technologies and expertise in overlapping fields of greenhouse solar capture; stirling engines; and optics for photovoltaics & daylighting etc. We are particularly excited by the potential of the SunPulse Water, a solar pump that is 3x as efficient as Photovoltaic pumps.

Natural Innovation helped Sunvention to document their technologies and focus their business and raised an emergency loan for them. This helped them raise substantial finance from a Swiss foundation. In addition, we mediated a relationship between Sunvention and Urban Ecological Systems, another of our incubatees. The first commercial installation of their Envelope Power Greenhouse will be installed at UES's new Sydney facility.

 

Their technologies have applications in the developed world but more importantly have a huge potential for impact in the developing world, where design choices leading to ease of construction and maintenance, lower cost materials for example lead to broad applicability.

This is a company to watch - they have a number of other technologies in the pipeline, including solar thermal off-grid systems, and water treatment.
