Our Focus: 1.6 Billion
By 2030 - 698.3 million people will live without electricity in Sub-Saharan Africa
alone followed by 488.6 million in South-Asia based on latest numbers projected by OECD/IEA (WEO 2010).
Governments, societies and organizations seem to be unable to bring the change quick enough to families in need.
Up to 30% Energy Cost
The reality is that families have to spend a significant amount of their limited income for burnable fuels like kerosene,
in order to fulfill basic household needs as light. Besides serious health (World Health Organization report) and safety issues,
kerosene light does not qualify as a sufficient light source due to its poor performance. Additional costs emerge for phone charging, batteries and cooking. To make it short: The overall amount
spent for energy is completely out of proportion and can go over 30% of family’s household income.
Niwa develops, manufactures and distributes the next generation of ultra-affordable sustainable energy solutions
for people living without electricity. We do this by utilizing latest state-of-art technology like highly energy efficient LED modules, environmentally friendly batteries with the longest lifetime in the market and
durable long lasting solar panels. Furthermore our product design is fully optimized for the rural consumer - usability, practicability, toughness, reliability and long time durability - all features we put special emphasis on.
The Right Time
We strongly believe that it is time to bring the benefits of globalization to the people which deserve
them the most. Declining technology prices bring up a unique product opportunity: Niwa’s ultra-affordable solar products.
Let‘s bring products with social impact to the communities and solve at the same time the problems of climate change.
with Social Impact
Our company philosophy 'solar products with social impact' best describes what we are doing: We deliver
products which can make a small difference in the communities of Africa and South Asia, let people
save their burnable fuel money and invest it into the education of their kids or the growth of their
People's Final Say
All our products are developed based on first-hand consumer studies did in African and Indian communities.
We strongly believe that only the individuals living in rural environments should have the final say about what
products we design for them. Not only do the products fit perfectly into their daily lives, they also do not carry
unnecessary ballast which brings up the retail price and therefore represent the optimum in terms of value proposition to the consumer.
For Economic Growth
Our solar products are simple tools for cost saving and economic growth of families having to deal with
unreliable electricity. In average it just needs 4 months for returning the initial investment and after
that day-by-day the money for burnable fuels like kerosene or disposable batteries is saved and stays in
the pockets of families.
No other sustainable energy solution is implemented by so little effort and changes
the live of families from day one. Comparing to centralized solar or wind power solutions -which require significant
investments in the infrastracture for power distribution- investments stay manageable and projects can be flexibly adjusted based on needs.
