Aptech Africa empowers 11 villages in Equatorial Guinea will solar PV systems

News flash

  • Despite logistics challenges, Aptech Africa has installed 11 solar systems in Equatorial Guinea featuring capacities of 5kWp, 15kWp, and 20kWp, coupled with battery energy storage ranging from 12kWh to 36kWh.

Among these, one system is hybrid, while the rest are standalone systems coexisting with generators and the existing grid. The systems encompassed distribution lines situated off-grid, often in challenging and inaccessible terrains.

The systems bring empowerment, fostering improved education facilities with consistent power supply, elevated healthcare services, community empowerment, and environmental conservation.

According to the World Bank, energy access in Equatorial Guinea is good at around 66% of the total population.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
