Universal access to electricity to improve people's way of life
Accessibility to energy is necessary to achieve sustainable development. It is alarming that around 15% of the world's population still does not have access to modern electricity services. That is almost 1.000.000.000 (one billion!) people using coal, charcoal, wood or animal waste to cook and light their homes.
In some of these areas where main power grids cannot reach, energy is being produced with fossil fuel generators, which means that there might only be non-renewable energy (if any) and for a limited amount of time (if any) – approximately six hours a day. This hinders social and economic development, with women and children being the most affected.
Hybrid micro-grids can provide sustainable energy 24 hours a day
Our innovative Solartia Hybrid solution is ideal for providing energy in locations where there is no grid or where power comes exclusively from conventional diesel or gas generators. Micro-grids aim to reduce fuel consumption using clean energy (solar, wind, etc.) and, if necessary, integrating gen-sets as an emergency backup.
By reducing the need for fossil fuels to generate electricity, carbon emissions and the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE) are reduced.
