In a major step forward in the widespread adoption of clean, renewable energy worldwide, Fluidic Energy is providing turnkey mini-grid solutions to 100 remote villages and communities in rural Madagascar. For the first time, more than 400,000 people will know what life is like having access to reliable electricity.
Having partnered with the Government of the Republic of Madagascar, represented by their Minister of Energy, H.E Gatien Horace, and Henri Fraise Fils & Cie, our Caterpillar partner in Madagascar, is deploying mini-grid systems that consist of more than 7.5MWp of photovoltaic panels, 45MWh of Fluidic Energy Advanced Energy Storage products, connections and pre-pay billing systems.
This is one of the largest off-grid rural electrification projects on the continent of Africa, and demonstrates the commitment of the Republic of Madagascar’s Government to increase the national electrification rate and bring reliable energy access to all populated areas of the country.
As project leader, we supply the energy storage systems including its integrated smart grid intelligence, as well as overall project management. And with the assistance of Henri Fraise Fils & Cie, we are exploring opportunities for setting up manufacturing infrastructure in Madagascar to support the project, creating jobs, stimulating economic growth, and maximizing local content.
