New milestone: meeco simultaneously energised two large-scale solar installations on two continents

Clean Energy,Europe,Projects,Sustainability,Technical Solutions — The meeco Group on January 9, 2019 at 13:52

Swiss energy provider put pv systems with total size of 4.44 mwp into operation

Two entirely different areas, one solar provider: Bethesda on the Caribbean island Antigua and a textile company in Leutkirch located in the South of Germany as of now benefit from clean solar power. Shortly before the end of 2018, the Swiss-based clean energy provider The meeco Group successfully managed the same-day commissioning of a ground-mounted 4 MWp sun2live solar utility and a roof-mounted sun2roof solar power plant with a total size of 440 kWp. While the Caribbean commissioning team worked at moist conditions with up to 30 degrees and 70 per cent humidity, the German commissioning staff had to deal with heavy snow and icy flat roofs.

Competitive solar energy through power purchase agreements (PPA)

Clean Energy,Projects,Sustainability — The meeco Group on November 1, 2018 at 14:02

meeco provides clean power investment without any upfront costs

Companies and private consumers in many regions worldwide have to cope with an unstable or highly expensive energy supply due to the unreliability of the grid or even the total absence of such a power supply. This involves, especially for companies and industries, a heavy disadvantage in terms of competitiveness on the global market. Paused production lines in manufacturing industries, interrupted cold chains in food factories or electrical breakdowns in office buildings are just a few examples how power cuts can cause substantial losses for the commercial sector and constitute a serious threat to their commercial success accordingly. Many companies rely on a diesel-based energy supply and suffer from high and unpredictable fuel and maintenance costs. Utilising solar (photovoltaic) technology is much more eco-friendly and cost-effective. The contractual framework of a power purchase agreement (PPA) offers all advantages of clean energy to long term predictable low prices with limited or no upfront capital expenditure (CAPEX) costs for the company.

meeco to enter the clean energy market of Madagascar

Africa,Clean Energy,Common,Projects,Sustainability,Technical Solutions — The meeco Group on September 3, 2018 at 10:04

Madagascar offers perfect conditions for implementing solar energy plants.

Groupe Filatex and The meeco Group have agreed implementation of solar power plants to feed clean energy into the island’s electricity grid

Located in the Indian Ocean, the Republic of Madagascar known for its outstanding rich biodiversity, has an excellent natural potential for solar energy thanks to its geographical position and the strong solar radiation. In order to benefit from these advantageous climate conditions and to generate reliable clean energy to feed and stabilise the national grid, Groupe Filatex and meeco have recently signed a cooperation agreement.  In the initial phase, the agreement sets the basis to build, own and operate three solar energy projects: two utility-scale sun2live PV power plants with a nominal capacity of 7 MW and 8 MW, and one hybrid solar diesel project comprising of two parts each with a nominal capacity of 500 kWp.

Clean energy projects promote Sustainable Development Goals

A reliable or seemingly stable and reliable energy supply seems self-evident for four-fifths of the world’s population. However, there are still numerous countries, where unlimited access to energy remains a luxury for wealthy people. In volume terms, more than 1.4 billion people worldwide live without any electricity supply, states the International Energy Agency.

The sunset in Saudi Arabia.

sun2roof solar equipment shipped to Khobar City to be installed on three roofs

With up to 2,800 kWh/m2 per year Saudi Arabia has one of the highest solar radiations worldwide. Recognising the tremendous potential of solar energy in Saudi Arabia, we have entered into negotiations with Saudi Arabian entrepreneurs several years ago. Nationally subsidised power prices and the huge oil reserves in the country though have limited the incentive to invest into clean energy solutions such as photovoltaic until yet.

We complete installation of sun2roof solar systems on 5 institute buildings

Guyana is striving towards a sustainable energy future. The government of the South American Republic, represented by the Guyana Energy Agency (GEA), has been constantly issuing clean energy tenders during the last year to reach the target of a 100% renewable energy supply in the country. As part of this program, we were awarded the tender to supply, design and install five sun2roof solar systems for the National Agricultural Research and Extension Institute (NAREI) together with our local joint venture oursun Guyana Inc.. The installation of the sun2roof clean energy solutions with a total solar capacity of 16 kWp, including respective sun2safe energy storage capacity has just been successfully completed. read more
