Demand for power continues to rise globally, posing challenges to the availability and reliability of utility grids.
Access to affordable and reliable electricity remains a key challenge for much of the population in Sub-Saharan Africa, where the World Bank estimates 7 out of every 10 people does not have access to electricity. Even in areas with grid power, high electricity tariffs and frequent power outages continue to impede economic productivity. In response to these challenges, many businesses and communities turn to diesel or natural gas generators to provide reliable power, but volatile fuel prices and harmful emissions still make this a suboptimal solution.
Microgrids provide a more cost-effective, reliable, and environmentally friendly solution to these electricity challenges.
