Rural Indian villagers using a Rural Spark Energy Kit and become Local Energy Suppliers who generate, use and sell energy. By trading energy surpluses with other Local Energy Suppliers in the network, supply and demand are linked.
The outdated, expensive and resource intensive grids, traditionally constructed in most developed areas do not provide the solution to electrify all of rural India. Rural Spark offers a unique opportunity to leapfrog the traditional, centralised grid based on the concept of Smartly Distributed Energy networks. Starting in rural India, where there are 400 million people without access to clean, safe and sustainable energy, Rural Spark provides high qualitative energy kits, containing of an energy source, the Rural Spark Spark Station and Share Cubes, and several applications. These solutions, developed through our unique approach (Hidden Design), enable a market for sustainable energy to emerge, working towards successful and reliable smart networks in rural areas.
