THE CHALLENGE OF FRONTIER MARKETS IN FIGURES
Sigora stands to tip the balance in expanding energy access by making micro-grids an investable proposition.- Quentin Antoine, European Commission Electrification Financing Initiative -
Conventional metering infrastructure provides zero visibility into grid operations while cash-based and post-pay systems leave utilities susceptible to payment default, billing errors, and outright fraud.
Near 100% bill collection is achievable with Sigora’s seamless, secure, pay-as-you-go platform. By eliminating cash and introducing PAYG grid-connected electricity purchases, Sigora’s purpose-designed payments and billing platform streamlines revenue collection, reduces billing errors, fraud, and non-payment.
Access real-time distribution and consumption information via the custom dashboard.
Connect or disconnect meters at any time. Changes made remotely are immediately pushed to meters in the field.
Define tariffs, set load limits, and more — in real time, either remotely through the cloud or locally by accessing the base station on-site.
1,200 Sigora meters are deployed on the Môle-Saint-Nicolas micro-grid operated by Sigora Haiti, which was awarded “Best Micro-grid Project” at the CREF awards, which recognize the most innovative and financially compelling renewable energy projects in the region.
Sigora International is a winner of the 2017 Microsoft Airband Initiative (formerly the Affordable Access Initiative), which recognizes innovative businesses that are developing technologies, services, and business models that help billions of people affordably get online and gain access to energy.
Access to electricity is crucial for almost all aspects of human and economic development. The right of all people to access affordable, reliable, and sustainable electricity that elevates living standards while promoting economic growth, preserving natural resources, and mitigating and adapting to climate change has been widely recognized.- United Nations’ Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) -
