Seminar in Addis Ababa Nov 21st

Zero CO2 and reduced energy costs – advantages for African industries. Use Solar Thermal for increased completeness in textile, food and beverage sectors

Multinational companies like IKEA and Unilever have declared to become Zero CO2 until 2030. H&M has declared that all purchases will be carbon neutral from 2030. The pressure on suppliers to become zero CO2 will increase.

African industries have in general higher energy costs than their competitors in Asia and Europe. With 2-3 times higher energy cost, it is difficult to compete on the export market.

Each square meter in sunny Africa receive the energy equivalent to 160 litres of diesel. With solar energy, African companies can both cut the CO2-emissions and reduce the costs of energy.
