Across Africa, there are many places electricity can’t reach or is poorly reached. As a matter of fact, supplying reliable and affordable electricity to Sub-Saharan African countries will be a challenge. Therefore, over the past few years, solar hybrid systems emerged as a solution to supply poor grids and off grids sites in electricity.

In this webinar, JinkoSolar and Elum Energy will highlight the latest PV technologies trends and micro-grid systems that hybridize diesel with solar and battery energy storage, and we will explore the use cases in hybrid systems in poor-grid and off-grid markets in C&I, Small Scales and Rural Electrification in SSA region.

Webinar content:

  • Overview of latest PV technologies for Hybrid systems.
  • Solar PV market trends in 2020
  • Micro-grids: A new way to provide resiliency and sustainable power.
  • Monitoring & control solutions for hybrid/off-grid power plants
