German clean energy solutions provider Care-Energy is set to provide solar infrastructure and related products in Lebanon
The company will deliver products like photovoltaic (PV) systems, storage, and infrastructure facilities to the Port of Beirut from Hamburg, stated officials from the company.
According to the company, supplying energy in the Middle East is expensive and challenging due to improper infrastructure. Setting up an energy supply based on an independent, decentralised system that does not require raw materials would offer significant advantages to the locals.
The range of products, collectively called Care Cel, aim to provide power to households, schools, hospitals and offices without the help of the national power grid. The project will be initiated in Lebanon and then executed in other Middle Eastern nations, added officials.
Martin Richard Kristek, owner and CEO of Care-Energy, said, ”In the poorest countries of the world, the absence of a grid infrastructure means that people either spend a huge part of their income on mostly diesel-generated energy or have no energy supply at all. Starting in Lebanon, we will show how this can be changed.”
The company plans to ship new ISO containers and OSB panels as packaging materials, which would remain in the country to build social housing after their one-time use for the transportation. Recipients have the option of purchasing Care Energy’s equipment or pay the cost of power.
”We are enabling cheap and environmentally-friendly power to be supplied, and we expect a long-term easing of the strain on transmission networks. At the same time, we are offering businesses a significant improvement in their potential for growth and development by providing them with a reliable power supply,” added Kristek.
