Clean Energy Expo Asia in Singapore

Our volunteer Stefan G. went to attend the CEEA (Clean Energy Expo Asia) exhibition in Singapore. There we met with participants and organizations that presented their clean energy solutions and new developments. It was quite a international event and it was good for us to get information about new ways to save energy and how to use energy resources more efficient.

Our main focus was finding solutions for people in rural areas that do not have access to the main grid power.

It was interesting to find out about the latest technology development for wind and solar applications. There were lots of new vertical windmill types, new long life LED lights and advanced battery systems to see. We hope that we can use these technologies in our projects for the benefit of rural people in the future.
