We are convinced that SDG 7 «Easy and affordable access to energy» can only be achieved by bridging the gap between simple solar home systems, which are not expandable, and larger mini-grids, which are complex and maintenance-intensive. Many villages are too remote for the maintenance-intensive operation of a mini-grid and have only limited productive use development potential due to the limited capacity of solar home systems.
It is the promotion of this socio-economic development potential that ultimately determines the success of an electrification project. This is why our holistic approach always focuses on productive use, taking into account local potential.
Enabling local communities to grow at their own pace, without incalculable financial risks
This begins with the processing of agricultural products, e.g. with grain mills, or chicken breeding machines and extends to simple services such as telephone charging stations. The yields generated enable rural communities to grow at their own pace without having to take incalculable financial risks.
