We bring solar power to people in developing countries who do not yet have access to clean, reliable and affordable energy. That is around 1.2 billion people today.
Energy is an essential basis for economic and social development. This includes overcoming poverty, creating jobs, reducing economic migration and protecting the environment.
Solar Connect eG (SCeG) pursues sustainable development policy goals by helping local entrepreneurs to put their mostly young companies on a sound footing. The framework conditions are excellent. According to the relevant industry association GOGLA, the Off – Grid industry is one of the most dynamic and innovative growth industries in the world.
Our model is unique and SCeG is thus in a pioneering role.
We support the trading activities of our customers in developing countries with product and supplier know-how as well as supplier credits. We take over an important part of the tasks of commercial banks, which show little interest in these companies. We see ourselves as partners in the critical growth phase and in scaling the business of these mostly young start-ups. Our goal is to relieve the pressure on working capital, especially for smaller companies with a regional focus in Africa and Asia.
As a cooperative, we combine our social concerns with economic sustainability and environmental protection:
- We enable people in developing countries to obtain clean and affordable electricity through consumer credit purchase models.
- We enable our local trading partners to purchase solar products and support them in their operations.
- We enable our cooperative members to combine their social and ecological concerns with economic returns.
As a member of Solar-Connect eG, you can benefit from the economic success of our cooperative – and with your social investment enable sustainable development in our partner countries.
