Core Projects

The practical validation of innovative approaches for meeting the development needs of local populations is one of the key components of WISIONS. We understand the term "innovation" in a broad sense. We do not focus solely on technical issues, but on a broad spectrum of aspects including community involvement, reliable ownership and management schemes, and sustainable business models. The aim is to empower individuals and communities to achieve sustainable development through the application of decentralised renewable energy solutions.
