Village Energy builds thriving communities by using advanced technology to help grid operators improve the reliability and affordability of providing energy to consumers.
We believe in the long term role of the electricity grid and target high growth developing markets, where a grid (of some form) already exists, but the quality and reliability of energy is poor and profitability is hard to achieve. We are not a solution for a community that currently has no electricity, but once the first, basic energy needs are met, we take it to the next level - improving reliability, quality, and affordability.
