  8. The Rural Energy Global Platform (REGP) is searching for an ‘Entrepreneurial manager with a vision on sustainable rural energy solutions’

    Date:
    Category: Corporate News

    The UN has designated the year 2012 as the year of ‘Sustainable Energy for All’. Today 1.4 billion people worldwide still do not have access to electricity or other sustainable energy sources even though this is an important condition for development. At the same time both the north and the south have plenty of technologies for generating renewable energy, whether biomass or wind and solar energy. However they are not available on an industrial scale, nor are they affordable. The missing link thus involves successfully marketing ‘creative’ technologies from the south (where they do more with less), combined with the experience of industrial companies from the north. Vyncke Energietechniek nv and a few other industrial partners in Europe and India have combined their industrial experience and the financial resources needed to make these technologies accessible to the lowest social classes in rural areas.
