Solarkiosk is a proud finalist of the Zayed Sustainability Prize 2020!
Solarkiosk is honoured and proud to be selected by a distinguished Committee as one of the finalists in the Energy category for the prestigious Zayed Sustainability Prize 2020.
We were one of 30 companies that have been chosen as a finalist from 2373 entries for the 2020 Awards. The winner of the award will be disclosed during the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week in January 2020.
Should we be chosen as the winner of the award, we will use the prize money to implement an entirely new project in a specific rural off-grid location in Sub-Saharan Africa. With this project we will prove that a B2B mini-grid for productive use can be set up in a sustainable and commercially feasible way.
The name of this project will be “Connected Solar Market Centers 2.0”
We have collected a lot of experience with similar pilot projects in Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda and Tanzania. Hence we are extremely confident that this new project will be a smashing success.
Here a short video in which we are sharing some more details about the project:
