>>> SOLAR FOR ALL CONTEST <<< "Presently 1.1 billion people worldwide, mostly in developing countries, live without access to #energy. Especially in developing and emerging countries the shortage of electrical power supply detains large parts of the population from overcoming their #poverty. Particularly in rural areas many qualified skilled workers and small-sized businesses have to abstain from using electrical machines. They are limited in the production of goods and denied a progressive development. To this day, many of the produced and badly needed groceries spoil in the heat because of the lack of refrigeration and conservation. Without energy for the cold storage of medication and vaccines, even elementary health supply is lacking..."
