27/02/19 meeco DEVELOPS CLEAN ENERGY PRODUCTS FOR TOURISM SECTOR IN AFRICA
PROJECT DEVELOPMENT AND FINANCING MODEL SUN2SHARE INTRODUCED IN BOTSWANA
The tourism sector is one of the largest industries worldwide and at the same time one of the fastest growing. In 2017, the travel and tourism industry accounted for 10.4% of the global GDP. Especially, in developing nations in Africa this sector is a major economic driver. In Botswana, it is the largest private sector employer and contributes over 6% to the national GDP – a number, which is set to grow substantially. However, the expansion of tourism, namely in off-grid areas, has potentially a considerable negative impact on the environment and climate. Taking into consideration this impact and aiming to establish a sustainable travel and tourism industry, meeco has introduced its clean energy project development and financing model sun2share together with the Botswana Tourism Organisation. This project development, execution and financing model enables customers to share the investment in their project with meeco and thereby benefit from a reputable clean energy partner with longstanding experience in the field of implementing renewable energy solutions around the globe.
