Phaesun Off-Grid News - April 2016

Education in rural Eritrea with solar driven projector

The German social NGO Archemed e.V. has been working for years in the health sector in Eritrea. The main activities are around support for maternal and children hospitals. One year ago Archemed together with the Eritrean Social Union has started a new project to inform about the dangers and risks of female genital mutilation. This thousand year old tradition continues to be practiced in a few communities, but still causes death or life-long pain for women.
Archmed uses educational videos to show in schools and to inform village communities. A special focus is to inform especially men in society, that are often not aware of the risks and the pain of this tradition. The videos are often shown in rural areas where there is no access to the electricity grid. Therefore Archemed is using a solar projector kit developed by Phaesun, that can be set up and carried easily.
Archemed reports about their work in Eritrea on their website. Please find also a report of the last visit to Eritrean villages, that took place in March 2016 on


15 Years phaesunized!
Episode 2008: Communicate about Off-Grid energy!

It was 15 years ago that the cornerstone for Phaesun was laid in Memmingen in the Allgäu. We use this anniversary year to tell about the Phaesun background and history episode by episode!
In 2008 Phaesun was focussing on a comprehensive communication strategy. The objective was to show, that the energy of the sun can be used in a practical way via Off-Grid solar systems anywhere in the world! Especially in structurally weak regions where there is no electricity grid, solar energy can bring enourmous progress to improve living conditions and increase independence. As a symbol for the practical use of the sun, Phaesun developed the squared sun, that remained for years in lots of Phaesun communication material (until now as part of the logo). To get closer to the customers, Phaesun organized the first Off-Grid workshop in Sharja/UAE in 2008 in cooperation with the solar electronic specialists Steca Elektronik and Studer Innotec and some more manufacturers of the sector. Please find pictures of the episode 2008 on the Phaesun Facebook page here.
