OffgridSun is an Italian solar company specialising in the development, design, manufacturing and commercialization of leading-edge solar photovoltaic technologies that provide durable and affordable access to energy in the rural areas of the developing world, as well as in other areas with limited or no access to grid electricity.
At OffgridSun we strive to contribute towards the achievement
of the United Nation’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, Goal 7:
Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.
As a common venture, OffgridSun was founded quite recently (2016). But we are proud to stress its unique feature: the capability of combining in its team
- 20 years of professional experience in design and installation of off-grid solar plants
- 10 years of entrepreneurial experience in industrial production of PV components
- 30 years of field experience in international development.
OffgridSun, therefore, synergises
- a strong technical know-how in solar technology
- with a deep cultural background in socio-economic development.
This peculiar expertise gives us a thorough understanding of the energy access challenge in a wide variety of local contexts, rural electrification approaches and last-mile distribution models.
The catalogue of the Solar Solutions proposed by OffgridSun blends proven, off-the-shelf mass products for rural electrification with on-demand, customized solutions.
We are also curios about researching and developing highly innovative applications of solar energy.
