ACCIONA.ORG IN PANAMA
In Panama, acciona.org works through ACCIONA Microenergia Panama, a Panamanian non-profit association(*) with the acciona.org Foundation as a reference partner.
Our objective is to bring access to modern energy to low-income people living in Panamanian rural communities, where there is no prospect of having that service with traditional means (distribution networks). With this aim, we provide third generation solar home systems (3GSHS).
In addition, we have extended our network of Centros Luz en Casa, by opening a first shop in Panama, that is owned by a local entrepreneur who manages this business from a reference location to assure spares and technical services of reparation for the systems.
OUR FIGURES (2020)
More than 500 additional households in Luz en Casa Ngäbe-Buglé12/23/2020 Panama
We have started a new phase to supply solar home systems that provide access to the electricity basic service to more than 500 households in the Ngäbe-Buglé indigenous region (Panama), in a public-private partnership for development with AECID.
THE RESULTS OF OUR ACTIVITY CONTRIBUTE TO THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (SDG’S) OF THE UN 2030 AGENDA
Yearly our projects increase their positive impact on the benefited population, favouring principally the achievement of SDG6, for its targets of universal access to water and sanitation, and SDG7, for its target of universal access to energy, as well as SDG9 in promoting the innovation.
