Over 60 people registered and more than 30 attended our recent webinar about the IMPHORAA Project.
The attendees were drawn from 20 different countries for the event on 7 September 2022, titled, ‘IMPHORAA - Implementation of Photovoltaics through a Mini-Grid Expansion Model for Rural African and Asian Communities.’
IMPHORAA project leader Mohammad Aziz Rahman was joined by Nicolas Staincy President and co-founder of Nanoé and John S. Defensor President of Quantum Leap JMB Mktg Inc as speakers at the event.
The goal of the project is to deliver low-cost energy from renewable resources to rural off-grid communities in Madagascar and the Philippines. This energy will be delivered using nano-grid technology and an associated innovative business model.
The project has focused on a fast market penetration through the deployment of a combined set of proven technologies including smart solar panel nano-grids, phase change material based DC coolboxes, and water pumping.
IMPHORAA aims to support income growth and the development of sustainable communities in rural areas, improving the conditions for rural housing and small scale enterprises.
The webinar offered details on the use of nano-grids comprised of photovoltaic cells for electricity harvesting along with local distribution, cooling storage and water pumping.
