The Agri POD is a modular building system that can serve for many kinds of building use; it is a product providing one systematic construction method that allows simplification of manufacturing and standardization of components and materials that will result in reduced cost as the product volume increases. This is a global product that can be adapted with great advantage in any climate or location in the world. This is a commercial product that optimizes the use of Sola Roof technology on a community scale.

The Agri POD is proposed as a platform for establishing social entrepreneurs who are Family Farm or community based. Agri POD is being launched from Norway as a sustainable development initiative for empowerment of communities that are now suffering the impacts of Climate Change and rapid urbanization and find the current agriculture is failing to provide food security."
