Antigua’s well-built PV systems sustain impact of hurricane Irma

Latin America,Projects,Technical Solutions — The meeco Group on September 21, 2017 at 13:37

REINFORCED FRAMES AND ROBUST DESIGN OF SOLAR ENERGY SYSTEMS HAVE PAID OFF

The 6th September 2017 will remain as a notable day that all the people of Antigua and Barbuda will remember. Irma, the most powerful hurricane ever recorded in the Caribbean, exceeding category 5, has then hit the twin island state with its devastating power. The island of Barbuda suffered from the highest impact, with 90% of constructions wiped away by the strong wind blowing at consistently 300 km/h and way above in gusts. Antigua at only 50 km distance from the eye of the storm and well within the devastating display of natural forces suffered less damage, but was affected seriously as well with sustained winds exceeding at times 275 km/h. read more

Small island states shift to clean energy

Common,Latin America,Projects,Sustainability,Technical Solutions — The meeco Group on November 24, 2016 at 15:32


Renewable energies to ensure reliable power supply on islands

One fifth of the countries worldwide are small island developing states. In terms of the effects of climate change, these regions belong to the most vulnerable worldwide. Sea level rise and increasing extreme weather events such as tropical storms represent real dangers for the existence of small islands. Therefore a transition to renewable energies, away from expensive and polluting fossil fuels, is urgently needed. Thanks to the abundant availability of unlimited clean energy sources such as wind or sun this shift is possible, realistic and commercially viable. read more
