    Context

    Pumping of water for domestic and productive uses has been difficult to maintain in Tanzania. This challenge is highly attributed by the higher costs of pumping water using conventional means such as diesel generators and electricity.

    Solar Photovoltaic (PV) technologies have enabled rural communities of Tanzania to apply this technology for lighting, water pumping, charging of cell phones, etc. Community water projects using solar pumps have benefitted from reduced running costs as compared to diesel or electric water pumps.

    Context

    Togo struggles with very low energy access rates, especially in rural areas. Togo’s energy supply predominantly comes from traditional energy sources (biomass consisting of wood fuel and agricultural residue), which account for 70 to 80 percent of the national energy mix.  New and renewable energy sources (e.g. solar, wind) are only marginally represented in the country's generation facilities. In 2015, Togo prepared and submitted its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), which identified the energy sector as a priority area.

  • Solar PV

    Type: 
    Technology
    Sectors:
    Objective:

    Solar photovoltaic, or simply photovoltaic (SPV or PV), refers to the technology of using solar cells to convert solar radiation directly into electricity. A solar cell works based on the photovoltaic effect. R&D and practical experience with photovoltaics have led to the development of three generations of solar cells: Crystalline silicon based solar cells, thin film solar cells and third generation PV.

  • Heats the water for large pool area

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    A field of 40 solar collectors provides Stödehuset outside of Sundsvall with heat and electricity. The installation heats the water for both the indoor and outdoor pools. The purchaser is the district energy company Sundsvall Energy, and the installation replaces a large part of the facility’s oil consumption. By using solar energy, Stödebadet hopes to offer warmer pools and expanded business hours. The customer received solar power subsidies for the installation.

  • Smedjebacken - Heat and electricity for district heating network

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    Twenty solar collectors connected to Bävergläntan’s wood-chip fired furnace, which provides heat and electricity to both the property and other industrial businesses A few years ago, the oil was replaced by a woodchip fired furnace. Now the wood-fired heating is supplemented with solar energy, primarily during the summer when the furnace is expensive to keep running. The purchaser for the system is Bävergläntans Fastighets in Smedjebacken, in Dalarna province, in Sweden.

  • Solar power plant for heat and electricity

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    Sweden’s first solar power plant for heat and electricity at Härnösand has been connected to the local district heating network. The plant has 20 solar collectors that generate heat for the district heating network and electricity for the electric power grid directly from the sun. The purchaser is the district energy company, Hemab, which can now offer their customers energy-friendly energy. A field with a 200 m 2 Absolicon X10 PVT system was installed next to the headquarters of the energy company. The installation is installed on the ground.
