SERVICES

Services offerd by neture.org

  • We consult and run training workshops on low energy use scenarios for web hosting, web publishing, and web design
  • We develop low-energy solar-powered hardware solutions to host websites and email and other collaborative tools
  • We develop and experiment with a decentralised network of low-energy clusters around the world

Areas of concern are:

  • Low cost & low energy solutions for web hosting (for instance, small ARM powered boards and other accessible devices)
  • Hardware recycling
  • Energy generation: e.g. Solar, Wind, Water, Battery
  • Website design
  • Content production
  • Solutions for decentralised cluster distribution to allow for localised hosting / island solutions to maximise sunlight hours between Australia and Germany among other things
