The UN has included the provision of clean and affordable electricity as a Sustainable Development Goal. In this session, we learn how Solar Bankers are overcoming hurdles in rural electrification using integrated packages of easy-to-use and easily deployable technologies that enable off-grid electricity production and energy self-sufficiency on the household level.

The company aim to provide utilities and governments with a comprehensive package of basic applications containing everything they need to build micro grids in which households can produce and trade energy. Households will be supplied with Solar Bankers' PV devices, which make use of a light-managing nano-structured foil to maximise output, and connected via smart meters. The system uses the highly scalable and efficient Fiber blockchain platform to create a digital currency system for efficient and secure electricity trading.
