22-11-2019


Picture: overview of the case studies discussed in the joint report presented below.

As a member of both SolarPower Europe’s Emerging Markets Task Force and Digitalisation & Solar Task Force, 3E is proud to share their latest joint report entitled ‘Digitalisation & Solar in Emerging Markets’.

The report explores the importance of digital solar with a special focus on new and emerging markets outside of Europe. It shows that digital solar is indeed a key pillar of the global energy transition in all segments of economy and society. The report includes off-grid digital solar technologies and business models such as solar-based microgrids and pay-as-you-go for solar, which enable access to energy in off-grid contexts or regions with unreliable power supply. Additionally, it includes on-grid technologies and business models that are interesting for new and emerging solar markets with stable power grids, such as smart data analytics or digital asset management for utility-scale solar power plants.

SynaptiQ: Solar portfolio management with satellite-based irradiation data for India
