These experiences as well as the great projections and interest shown for standalone energy solutions throughout the African continent, have led to the inauguration of our new business office in Nairobi in early 2017.
Powerspot is currently prospecting in Kenya and Tanzania to assess its marketing possibilities in East Africa.
Activities have included contact with various distributors and potential partners as well as presentations at the Kenya Investment Authority and the Naivasha Horticultural Fair 2016.
With these and other contacts Powerspot reinforces its commitment to the East African region and once again notes the growing interest of developing countries in the implementation of autonomous and clean energy solutions.
PowerSpot actively participated in the Inclusive and Sustainable Industrial Development meeting organized by ICEX in collaboration with the Energy Division of UNIDO and the Economic and Commercial Office of the Embassy of Spain in Vienna, which took place in Madrid.
The event was attended by Pradeep Monga, representative of UNIDO (United Nations Industrial Development Organization) who explained the business opportunities in the industrial and energy sector for Spanish companies.
UNIDO is the specialized agency of the United Nations based in Vienna that promotes industrial development for poverty reduction, inclusive globalization and the achievement of environmental sustainability of production activities.
There are people who don’t have enough with the theory; and Sandra is one of those. So she decided to field-test the PowerSpot Extended Lanyard to see if she could get electricity directly over hot coals.
We love the way she prepared a hole in the ground and then hung the generator from a branch! You can read the full experience on her blog, the best travel .
Pablo made an exhaustive test of one of our generators (PowerSpot Lanyard) that included water and gas consumption, the completely loading a mobile phone…
In addition to providing some tips about how to protect the cables, one of the most interesting things he shows is how it works directly over a fireplace:
Pels and Poli have hiked up the mountain with two of our generators and performed an exhaustive comparison between the two. One of the interesting things they have done is that they have used the Lanyard+ Extended for cooking while it generated electricity (the extension is suitable for heating and eating food out of it).
So the question they leave hanging is: Are you looking for greater volume or greater generating capacity? Depending on your choice you can opt for a different PowerSpot model.
Powerspot expands its range with two products designed for the mountaineer. The Micro and Nano generators fit in any backpack and are designed to provide power anywhere as they are used on conventional outdoor stoves.
