A Belgian firm by the name of Skilpod is producing modular prefab homes that, with the correct incorporation of appropriate equipment and expertise, can be used in a zero energy or indeed an energy positive manner. When energy positive, the Skilpod can produce more energy than it requires, and this can be fed back into the grid.
Designed as part of a collaboration with UAU Collective, these modular prefab homes are perfect for people for whom traditional houses are needlessly big. Skilpod's 48 square meter dwelling for example is perfect for young singles and seniors, and is set to be provided through social housing organizations in Belgium.
Inexpensive, expandable and comfortable, Skilpod's modular prefab homes make it easier for certain segments of the population to find the kind of housing they need.
