Microgrid solutions for Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs)

Power to touch human lives

Fueling change through cost-effective clean energy

An estimated 645 million people in the sub-Saharan African region do not have access to electricity. This effects the day-to-day lives of people; from domestic cooking at homes to treating critically ill patients in medical facilities. The existing grid infrastructure is not robust enough to meet the rising power needs of this fast developing continent. Lack of access to modern energy is severely impacting both human and economic development of Africa. 

Across the continent, many humanitarian organizations are leading various development efforts - from building educational institutions to promoting small scale businesses - using clean energy as a catalyst. These organizations bring together the local governing bodies, civic societies and private sectors to address the prevailing energy crisis. In recent years, profit and non-profit organizations have come together to build sustainable energy solutions that will ensure clean, low-cost and reliable electricity for everyone. With large human population spread out as smaller communities in remote off-gird locations and many Africa nations trying to minimize carbon footprint, microgrids is emerging as a viable power generation model in the region. This change is further strengthened by favorable external market factors like declining solar energy cost and battery storage price.

ABB PowerStoreTM is a containerized microgrid solution, best suited to meet the power requirements of emerging economies like Africa. The plug-and-play microgrid product with its unique ability to generate 100 % renewable power almost anywhere, anytime can be easily deployed in any off-grid locations. Our solution helps to:
