Power Roll Ltd Awarded Energy Catalyst 5 Project
Power Roll are delighted to have
been awarded a £700k grant from Innovate UK to fund development and
demonstration of its unique ultra-low cost, scalable solar PV technology in
off-grid locations in Africa and India. Power Roll are working with
expert sub-contractors and three partners to support the demonstrators across
several test sites in these markets: The Energy and Resources Institute, India
(TERI); Unilever; and Newcastle University.
The project is focused on
the development and demonstration of various system applications that address
the energy needs of rural off-grid communities in the Sub Saharan African,
Indian and SE Asia. In the first year several demonstration sites across India
and Africa and commercial applications, such as solar pumping for agricultural
irrigation will be developed. In year two, the Power Roll PV technology
will then be deployed into the various applications and test sites allowing
field data to be collected including system performance and end user benefits.
