Reduced energy costs dispense with fossil fuels in Africa

Africa,Clean Energy,Continents,Sustainability,Technical Solutions — The meeco Group on August 15, 2019 at 12:33

Renewables are a highly competitive alternative

Over the last years, electricity prices have significantly increased. Meanwhile, the costs for renewable energy systems have stabilized at a remarkably low level. At the end of June 2019, various American media releases stated that the U.S. receive more electricity from renewable energies than coal – a big step for an industrial nation. But why seems such a development impossible for a continent like Africa? Although the renewable energy use is increasing year by year, fossil energy still dominates the electricity sector. read more

meeco promotes energy rethinking on the Arabic peninsula

Saudi Arabia and the UAE are best known for their deserts, oil and wealth. Both also offer perfect conditions for solar energy projects, which, however, underperform compared to their given potential in terms of installed capacity. Oil and Gas are still energy suppliers number one. But there is a change in mind: Since the beginning of 2019, both countries have had a fundamental rethink and are now eager to improve their generation of renewable energy. The meeco Group through its local joint venture oursun Saudi Arabia accompanies this development by realising clean energy projects with sustainable solutions.

sun2safe energy generation and management systems provide clean energy for medical health care

In today´s fast moving times, a life without a stable and sustainable energy connection is un-imaginable. In nearly every point of life, a continuous energy supply is required. However, this does not come naturally in every part of the world. What happens, when people in remote are-as need medical help and have no possibility to reach a centralized medical institution? Being aware of this problem affecting millions of people, Dr. Abdul Bari Khan, CEO of the Indus Health Network, initiated the Primary Care Program, a mobile clinic container solution in Paki-stan. The Swiss-headquartered renewable energy generation and storage provider The meeco Group supports this program with its intelligent energy management systems sun2safe.
