So far, not many NABC members have their core business reflect in their corporate name like Independent Energy. The Dutch enterprise provides power to places that are dependent on an unstable power grid in need of support from external electricity sources and to communities that do not have access to any source of power. This is where Independent Energy comes in, offering diverse energy solutions, including solar and wind systems for grid connected solar projects, off-grid applications, micro-grids, hybrid power, and project-based complete autonomous installations. The product range also defines Independent Energy’s biggest market: Africa. “It is not for nothing that we are NABC member”, confirms Peter van Zwol, Founder and Managing Director of Independent Energy, and explains that well-developed, stable energy infrastructures are not often to be found in Africa, especially in the more remote, rural areas. Accordingly, the demand for autonomous grid-substitutes or grid-connected power systems is high.
