Alimentaris “Energy Access” Project: from pilot project to large-scale programs to give universal access

Public Policies

The “Access to Energy” Project terminated in December 2016 can be considered a success as its main objective has been exceeded. The purpose was to generate and disseminate knowledge on 3rd generation photovoltaic solar systems – SPV3G in government authorities to provide universal access to basic electrical energy in rural populations.

SPV3G are economical systems (up to 70% less than a conventional system) that provide a comprehensive and efficient solution as regards energy.

As a direct result of the project, Government Agencies for energy access in rural populations from Bolivia (IDTR) and Argentina (PERMER) are working on a large-scale programs to introduce this solution into their operations. This solution is being at issue by the Governments of Peru and Paraguay.
