How solar energy powers economic growth

Africa,Technical Solutions — The meeco Group on August 22, 2017 at 15:34


A stable energy sector is one of the most essential requirements for successful economic development and growth. Whilst in almost all countries in Europe or North America, the energy infrastructure is well developed, many other regions of the world have to deal with severe challenges in this area. In Africa, two-thirds of the continent’s population lack access to electricity. The reason for this energy crisis consists in particular in the rising electric power consumption per capita and the increasing gap between the growth of population, which was by 2.9% annually over the last 25 years, and the grid extension rate of only 2.7% over the same period. read more

The meeco Group first provider of clean energy to install MWp sized PV plants in Zimbabwe

For years now, Zimbabwe has been enduring daily power outages that make life of its inhabitants harder. These power cuts are due to the production of power in Zimbabwe being lower than required by the national demand. Figures show that whereas Zimbabwe would need a daily power generation of 1,730 MWp to be fully operational, the country only produces 1,200 MWp per day, leading inevitably to shortages and long lasting-blackouts. read more
