Obviously Northern-African and Middle-Eastern countries have an enormous potential to produce renewable energy that can be of value for the local economies but can only deliver substantial economic value when the export of renewable energy to the large European market is being accomplished.


INTRENEX is based on a scientific study that aims at supplying a very large market with 100% renewable energy on a 365/24 basis. There are two main technical aspects to it that make it the most cost competitive solution. First, mainly onshore wind-power is being used. Second a system of High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) lines is being used to transport large amounts of electrical energy with very little loss over very large distances, the "Supergrid".


INTRENEX was founded to bring substantial installations forming this Supergrid for the countries involved including Europe off the ground in a relatively short time frame.


Only a very fast build-up of renewable power can reduce the effects of climate change in a timely fashion.




To get "The INTRENEX Embassy" based in Vienna, Austria off the ground some funding is required and we hereby invite all Northern-African and Middle-Eastern countries to join forces. Building renewable energy on a country-by-country basis will not have the beneficial effects of creating local economic value as it has when really large installations are being built that will include a lot of local economic activities.


The electrical energy market volume of the projected area is about 4000TWh in one year and through generation of this energy in very effective locations, a very cost competitive price can be achieved that will guarantee a large customer base.


The Supergrid does not need Batteries or H2 electrolysis as the local grid in Europe will need and thus will always be of superior cost competitiveness against any solution that is being followed by European policies at the moment.


The technical Details as well as the economic effects of such an endeavour are laid out in more Detail in the executive summary that you can download here: http://www.intrenex.com/download/es2017.pdf


Funding INTRENEX for a first period of five years, where we will acquire high potential personnel from all countries involved, will prove that we can deliver on our promises.

The sum required for the INTRENEX embassy will be very small compared to the mountains of capital that will have to be moved when this project gathers momentum.


INTRENEX will host two workshops to start the "Embassy" in Vienna before summer 2018:


1. The Q&A Rally

A Workshop open for all kind of engineers, scientists, bankers, ambassadors, ministries and interested people. Everyone is invited to ask any question related to the INTRENX enterprise and for networking between the parties involved. This workshop will be held on Monday, April 9th 2018 at Exnersaal, Paials Eschenbach, Vienna


2. The Funding Workshop

The Funding Workshop is for every person that is entitled to underwrite funds to run the INTRENEX enterprise for a period of five years. This workshop will be held at Wednesday, June 20th 2018 at Exnersaal, Paials Eschenbach, Vienna


Please forward this information to anybody that you think might be interested and feel free to mail any question you might have to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Press Release:

"Austrian know-how at the Louvre Abu Dhabi Multimedia guide and public app"

The Louvre Abu Dhabi is one of our era's most ambitious museum projects. Vienna, for its part, represents proven expertise in the cultural field. Expertise that NOUS now has the opportunity to put to work in the Arab world. On November 11, 2017, the museum on Saadiyat Island, designed by star architect Jean Nouvel, will open its doors to the public, and for its digital knowledge transfer will rely on the know-how of the Austrian firm NOUS. In the context of a global call, NOUS, an international provider of (cultural) corporate digital solutions, was commissioned to develop and realize the digital strategy for the flagship museum project on the Arab peninsula. After a roughly two-year, co-creation process together with the Louvre Abu Dhabi's museum team, available now is not only an in-house multimedia guide, which can be expanded in terms of scale and modules, but also a supplementary public app for smartphones and tablets. The guide, which acts as a quasi-compass for navigating through the Arab world's first universal museum, includes six languages, among them: Mandarin, Russian, and Hindi. The main features comprise a participative-intuitive group tour mode as well as applications designed especially for children, an inclusive mode for the visually impaired, and a virtual map of the museum.


"The international showcase project is a further milestone for our firm. We want to be present where digital innovation takes place in the cultural realm – and by that, we mean globally."
— Wolfgang Schreiner, CEO of NOUS


The Louvre Abu Dhabi sees itself as a space for cultures to gather, and is based on a 2007 governmental agreement between France and the United Arab Emirates. In addition to the permanent exhibition, the universal museum will also have a changing exhibition of loans from prestigious French collections. With the help of new forms of mediation and presentation, exhibits from different origins and various epochs will be woven into an art-historical narrative that takes visitors on a journey from the ancient world to the present.

Please feel free to contact me at any time for additional information on the multimedia guide and public app at the Louvre Abu Dhabi, and with requests for interviews with the NOUS team.

More detailed information on the Louvre Abu Dhabi can be found in the press section of the museum's homepage. General information about NOUS is available here for download.
