Supplying remote areas with renewable energy
Under the motto “Future Energy: Action for Global Sustainability”, Expo 2017 focuses both on ensuring that people in developing countries have access to a reliable energy supply from renewable sources and on the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy.
“Securing the energy supply in developing countries is a very important topic for us here at TESVOLT. Particularly in regions that lack a well-developed power grid, storage systems can be used to maintain the energy supply, thereby improving quality of life and local economic opportunities”, explained Daniel Hannemann, Managing Director of TESVOLT.
International storage projects
In 2016, the Wittenberg company installed the world’s largest off-grid storage system in Rwanda. The system provides the power to supply 2000 people with water. As part of a collaboration with the start-up Africa GreenTec in rural West Africa, TESVOLT uses storage containers to ensure that 250,000 people have reliable access to inexpensive solar energy.
