​The Powerhouse-Concept at a Glance is a non-profit organization that builds modular mini-grid powerhouse systems – designed according to the German Bauhaus building block principle – in sub-Saharan Africa with local partners to give everyone affordable access to safe drinking water and electricity. The technology was developed by in Germany by the renowned research institution Fraunhofer HHI and Clausthal University of technology and manufactured by the start-up companies VoltaView GmbH and VoltaMove GmbH.
