28/04/2017

Rémy Rioux, Chief Executive of the Agence Française de Développement (AFD – the French Development Agency), was in our office on the 21st of March to sign a financing agreement between the French Facility for Global Environment/Fonds Français pour l’Environnement Mondial (FFEM) and Sunna Design, aimed at developing an innovative solution for access to energy in rural areas of developing countries. Thanks to this grant of €500,000, Sunna Design will be able to electrify more than 1600 households in Senegal through our Nanogrid solution

Nanogrid : A solution to develop connected solar street lights for developing countries 

This highly innovative lighting solution involves the creation of an electricity nano-network from a solar street light, providing lighting and small electronic equipment recharging to four homes. Energy is pre-paid by mobile phone, offering people their first access to digital services. The scheme has already been piloted in Casamance, a remote village in Senegal, where 2000 people were able to access energy and reduce their use of kerosene and batteries, which have a major impact on the environment and their health.
