"Special Exhibit Rural Electrification" during Intersolar Europe

Rural Electrification is a major issue to solve for developing countries. Especially in emerging economies as India where the rural population is very high and a huge percentage has still no access to electricity, the government is looking  for innovative strategies. Electrification of rural areas in developing countries increases the quality of life, stimulates productivity and education and reverses urbanization trends. Rural electrification fosters achieving the Millennium Development Goals. PV electricity combines a relatively high initial investment with very low operational costs, thus they are often the least-cost option in off-grid electrification. To guarantee consumer satisfaction and to safeguard the success of credit schemes, a long life of such systems and components is of paramount importance.

During Intersolar Europe the German solar industry association (BSW-Solar) presents for the third time a “Special Exhibit Rural Electrification”. At the booth more than 20 companies display products and services on off-grid power. Visitors meet experts from the industry association and from the companies to address their questions on rural electrification. During a three-day series of lectures, the exhibiting companies will present their innovative expertise and international experience on rural electrification projects.  The lectures start on Wednesday 13rd of June  and will focus on water and energy supply for remote areas, with special focus on Latin America. On Thursday 14th  the speakers talk about Hybrid PV Systems to power villages in Asia and on Friday the main focus is on small Pico PV Systems to supply basic electricity to families in remote Africa. The BSW- Solar booth is Hall B2, booth 410.
