Photovoltaic business models with energy customers in South Africa

Workshops for municipalities and municipal utilities

In cooperation with Sustainable Energy Africa, eclareon has been transferring proven concepts, IT solutions and best practice projects with photovoltaic solutions to municipal administrations and energy companies in South Africa. The German municipal utilities and their associations have been marketing such solutions for years to bind their customers. A common approach are, for example, so-called "white-label models" in which one sub-contracted service provider co-ordinates the service for several public utilities and manages the added value in the background. These and other solutions were presented in workshops to municipal representatives of the energy industry in four South African regions and discussed with regard to their transferability to South Africa.
