Micro Power Economy for Rural Electrification
Providing power supply to remote villages using renewable energy sources
The goal of the initiative is to offer rural customers in Senegal reliable power supply through the innovative business model “MicroPowerEconomy” that enhances social, environmental and economic sustainability for both the rural customers and the power provider. MicroPowerEconomy establishes stand-alone hybrid power systems for the environment-friendly and reliable electrification of rural villages while promoting the development of local enterprises to ensure the power supply’s economic viability. The business model is to provide green energy technology, micro-finance services and business training to stimulate local economic growth, while at the same time minimising risks to make rural electrification an interesting investment opportunity.
