(Ecofin Agency) - German startup Africa GreenTec has commissioned its first solar container in Niger, in the Tahoua region. In Africa, solar containers provide renewable energy to villages, farms, charity organizations and mines.

Africa GreenTec’s solar container includes a 41 kWp mobile PV system and a 60 kWh power storage system. It will power the village of Amaloul Nomade which is not yet connected to the national grid.

“We can offer the local people a bit of comfort, access to education and knowledge, and new prospects – today, all of these things are especially dependent on a reliable supply of electricity,” said Torsten Schreiber, Founder and CEO of Africa GreenTec.

The construction, transport and setting up of the 40-feet container were possible with the help of private investors and the International Climate Initiative (IKI). The project aligns with the will of the federal government of Germany to mitigate the causes of migration of African refugees to Europe, knowing that a major part of this traffic transits through Niger.
