Sustainable Technologies Contribute Dynamic Solutions to Rural Energy Developments
With increased flexibility in harnessing and storing various forms of energy, decentralized renewable energy (DRE) systems are increasingly in focus for rural and other regional endeavors.
Empowering communities towards energy independence can be facilitated by utilizing a variety of sustainability technologies; many locations are already realizing the paybacks of renewable-energy infrastructure and a variety of systems that work in combination to provide full energy and resource security.
To help implement the infrastructure for a decentralized, safeguarded energy supply, Team Gemini integrates multiple sustainability technologies in its overall development approach. For rural and more isolated communities that don’t enjoy access to a more robust energy supply, these types of solutions are ideal. We’ve previously highlighted the benefits of microgrids in remote regions, as well as how low-emission targets enabled by renewable energy offer many advantages.
Now, a new report summarizes key highlights of some of these working examples in order to help facilitate a better policy and project development framework moving forward:
It is now well understood that universal electricity access by 2030 (a core part of U.N. Sustainable Development Goal 7 -SDG 7) can only be achieved if decentralized renewable energy (DRE) — green micro-grids and rooftop solar paired with storage and ultra-efficiency appliances — gets adequate finance to reach scale quickly. And that can only happen if leaders overseeing international finance and national policy undergo a major shift in mindset.
A report released by Power for All in April not only identifies the most important national energy policies needed to kick-start ending electricity poverty for 1.1 billion people, it also offers governments in low energy access countries a framework for implementing those policies effectively, in particular by integrating DRE (also known as distributed or “off-grid”) solutions into overall energy market and infrastructure design.
Energy resources for communities are manifold, and include utilities like electricity, thermal energy, and water. Specific to Team Gemini’s offerings in supplying these resources, team members like 2G Energy (combined heat and power), Viessmann (thermal energy et al), ABB (resource management and monitoring), and A3 (wastewater treatment and conservation) come to mind. Beyond these, sustainable agriculture also comes into play, as food resources are critical for survival. These companies, among others, provide outstanding technology and service options to fulfill a variety of energy efficiency needs for countless industries.
