A sustainable solution for scaling up of drinking water supply
service provision to poor communities in remote areas.


A Socially responsible, ENVIRONMENTALLY Sound
and economically profitable business model.

Today, more than 1.1 billion people worldwide do not have access
to clean drinking water. Mainly poor people living in remote
communities in developing countries suffer from contaminated
water. In order to achieve the UN Millenium Development Goals for
drinking water supply, it requires large efforts and co-operations
between government and non-government organisations to make
progress in gaining access to a safe water source for residents in
remote areas.
The Swiss company Trunz Water Systems has converted the vision of
a self-sufficient water treatment system into practice. The compact
and exceptionally energy efficient water treatment and desalination
systems are powered by integrated photovoltaics and wind
generators. This means that there are virtually no boundaries to
using this system anywhere in the world.
The operation of water shops is already established in some areas
and remarkable success has been achieved.
Trunz Water Systems is now targeting a next level with the Water
Shop Concept. This innovative solution is going one step further
by using renewable energy and exceptionally energy efficient water
treatment units to operate water shops in a sustainable and environmentally
friendly way.


The Water Shop Concept is by far more than a technical solution
– it is our vision to achieve maximum impact such as:
  • providing access to clean drinking water and energy for an affordable price
  • establishing sanitary installations in order to improve health conditions
  • reducing poverty by establishing microentrepreneurship and small-scale trade
  • producing green energy to operate the water shop sustainably
  • raising awarness for topics related to water, sanitation and health
