Micro-grids reshaping energy in Lebanon

Lebanon suffers from sporadic electricity supply. An aging grid, a lack of domestic fuel supply, and political sectarianism has rendered electricity both intermittent and expensive. Thousands of diesel generators struggle to meet the shortfall but have not been able to keep pace with demand. Today Lebanon finds itself one of the three most indebted countries in the world with one third of its budget deficit going toward fuel subsidies.

A team of entrepreneurs from Firebird Energy has come up with a solution: modular solar micro-grids with batteries for storage. Custom designed power conversion and battery management systems provide the ‘brain’ for the system and ensure uninterrupted electrical supply, including for industrial uses.
