Halftime for Antigua and Barbuda’s solar rooftop projects: Nearly 50 % of the agreed 2 MWp solar rooftop systems are installed. The 2 MWp sun2roof are part of a 10 MWp clean energy cluster conducted and realised by the government of the Caribbean twin-island state and the UK-based renewable energy provider PV Energy Limited. The equipment of government-owned buildings such as schools thereby represents a fundamental part of reducing the twin-island’s dependency on fossil fuels and spurring the development of a green economy.
In the course of the last months, the Caribbean twin-island state Antigua and Barbuda has underlined its pioneering role in terms of a sustainable development through numerous renewable energy projects. The upcoming start of construction of two sun2live installations for the company Caricement Antigua Ltd. once again contributes to a sustainable power generation with the target to reduce costs arising from imported fossil fuel and pollution caused by diesel generators.
meeco provides innovative PV energy solutions for remote areas
Even today, many regions around the globe lack infrastructures that are adequately developed to supply the population with affordable and reliable electricity. In a world with unsteady and unpredictable fuel and transportation costs, the usage of diesel generators is not a reliable and cost-effective solution anymore. Relying primarily on diesel for remote power generation is not only remarkably costly – considering the high operational cost of diesel/oil consuming generators – but also very risky, as fuel prices are endlessly unpredictable, volatile and undeniably rising over time.
29 sheep returned to sun2live airport facility in Antigua
The 3 MWp sun2live solar power plant at the V.C. Bird International Airport Antigua has once again become home for a flock of sheep. After having accomplished the repair of the fence surrounding the facility, the clean energy provider PV Energy, a UK-based joint venture of The meeco Group, could retrieve 29 sheep to the facility last week.
meeco to set PV plants in harmony with surroundings
Sustainable development has been established since long as a priority goal of governments, businesses but also of private investors. As a recently published report of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) emphasises, solar energy will continue to contribute to this goal: From todays 2 % share of global electricity generated by solar systems, it is supposed to increase to 13 % by 2030.
Government of twin island state has officially inaugurated 3 MWp solar power plant at V.C. Bird International Airport Antigua
Antigua and Barbuda’s electricity sector has just got much closer to becoming the greenest in the whole of the Caribbean. The national target to generate 20 per cent of the required electricity from solar energy is almost tangible. Yesterday, the Government of Antigua and Barbuda together with the UK-based clean energy provider PV Energy Limited and The meeco Group has officially inaugurated the 3 MWp solar power plant at the V.C.Bird International Airport of Antigua.
PV Energy Ltd. joins the Antiguan’s and Barbudan’s in raising awareness towards solar power in the island
The clean energy provider attended the CARICOM Energy Awareness Week
Given the 30% rise in energy demand in only one decade – caused by increasing industrialisation and regional development in the Caribbean – the Government of Antigua and Barbuda (GOAB) is looking to augment the fossil fuel based energy supply by renewable energy in order to bridge the power gaps and reduce the twin-island’s reliance on crude oil.
PV Energy finalized clean energy installation at V.C. Bird International Airport
The Government of Antigua and Barbuda (GOAB), together with the UK-based clean energy provider PV Energy Ltd., has lately turned a new page in Caribbean history through the completed installation of a solar energy generation and storage sun2live solution as a partial substitute for fossil fuels in Antiguan electric power generation.
PV Energy Ltd. looks back on one-week training program organised for Caribbean partners
The 3 MWp installation on the southwest shoulder of the V.C. Bird International Airport of Antigua, which is the first PV installation of a total capacity of 10 MWp in sun2live and sun2roof solar projects across the twin-island is currently close to commissioning. With this happening PV Energy who advance funded and executed this project, continues to support its Caribbean partners to make the best use of the opportunities offered by the newest renewable energy technologies, by introducing a training program tour across Europe.
PV Energy continues training sessions to enhance local engineering capacity
Willing to take a shift towards more sustainable patterns of energy consumption, the Government of Antigua and Barbuda (GOAB) recently made use of PV Energy’s clean power expertise for the construction of a 10 MWp solar energy project cluster including a first 3 MWp installation at the V.C. Bird International Airport on Antigua.
