Clean, Affordable Energy Solutions for Emerging Markets
An estimated 79 percent of people in the world’s poorest nations live in the dark, lacking the basic power needed to compete in a global economy. With exploding populations and constrained domestic fuel resources, these rapidly growing countries need locally sourced, distributed renewable energy to ensure sustainable development.
Many emerging markets suffer from rampant power outages which hamper daily life and restrict economic output. With dispersed populations and underdeveloped power infrastructures, most emerging markets have low rates of electrification, preventing large portions of their citizens from participating in industrialization and its associated economic benefits. Many emerging markets rely heavily on imported petroleum to fuel power generation, leaving their governments and citizens vulnerable to extreme price shocks, steady price climbs, and health impacts from pollution.
Astonfield recognizes that no one solution will fix the varying complex energy needs of emerging markets and is therefore deploying the most advanced, proven technologies available to fit the unique characteristics of each individual community.
To address these pressing needs Astonfield works with world-class technology partners, and to date, Astonfield power plants produce enough electricity to power the equivalent of roughly 18,200 Indian homes and counting.
