SunTransfer is part of the Solar-Federation - Network for sustainable energy access.

The concept of this network:

We recognize the complexity of each development and therefore we do not focus on one single aspect. For a permanent change, we bundle rather the diversity of tasks (training, financing, production, installation, customer service, etc.) in an overall strategy. This will ensure that not only isolated, individual projects are implemented, but an overall development is provided.

To ensure both a social and financial sustainability, we bring together the For-Profit activities under the supervision of a Non-Profit organization. Thus, the economic targets always follow a broader social purpose.

We orientate ourselves primary on the locally assessed needs of the population in rural areas, not on the conceptions of external European investors.
