Acting for the energy transition


Sector: Self-consumption / Location: Madagascar (Ilakaka)

Project display

The project concerns M-STORE, a family-owned company from the SEEM Group (the Madagascar Water and Electricity Company), whose main activity is the “electrification of rural areas in different municipalities”, including ILAKAKA, known as the one of the largest sapphire farms.
This will be the installation of a photovoltaic system in shadow or on the ground. It will allow the company to:
• Improve the cost of producing energy.
• Improve the Carbone impact of energy production.
• Benefit from a means of production adapted to one of the sunniest regions of Madagascar.
