AidEx Africa

Now in it's fourth year, AidEx Africa is a two-day high-profile conference which takes place annually in Nairobi, Kenya. AidEx Africa was developed as a satellite event to the already well-established AidEx conference and exhibition for humanitarian and development aid, held each year in Brussels.

AidEx Africa attracts over 300 delegates from the Government of Kenya, UN agencies, Kenyan Red Cross and leading NGOs from Africa and beyond.

Energy Farm Co., Ltd is a South Korean enterprise that produces renewable energy based solutions and products to tackle energy poverty in developing countries. At AidEx 2016, the company introduces their new innovative solar home system NESFARM, the fruit of sharing solar technologies with the youth in Cambodia. They will be exhibiting at AidEx 2016 on stand B40.

It started with a single trainee; eight years later there is a whole “Eco Solar” team comprised of seven Cambodian solar engineers.

In a bid to boost local community development, Energy Farm Co. Ltd started sharing solar technology with young Cambodian men through a series of technology transfer projects that began in 2009. The trainees learn how to design and make solar based products such as a solar cooker or off-grid solar power systems. As they grow in experience, these young men become skillful and equipped with knowledge and passion to better their community’s access to electricity. Today, Eco Solar members are working as solar engineers in Takeo Province, and they are the most important local partner for Energy Farm Co., Ltd in Cambodia.

One of their recent big achievements was installing the solar home system NESFARM, in fifty homes in a farming village. In 2016, Energy Farm Co., Ltd launched NESFARM (Natural Energy Supply Farm) in cooperation with KOICA (Korea International Cooperation Agency) through the Creative Technology Solution programme. NESFARM boasts its effective and long-lasting battery management system respond to the changes in weather. Thanks to its specially designed circuit, the solar powered device is protected from heat over 40 Co, to prevent an overload and short circuit. This has enhanced the residents’ energy awareness promoting the economic and social benefit of solar. These engineers have also played a big role in building trust with the villages through their diligence and commitment.

Eco Solar members hope that they can continue to improve the quality of life of local communities through solar energy. This December, they will continue with their initiative and build an 8kW-solar generator for an organic meat processing factory that the community will run for better income. It just goes to show that even a small changes can go a long way in helping communities become self-sufficient.
