To face the challenges of climate change and respect the 2 degree scenario, our Epsilon workshop aims to integrate the use of alternative energy sources into its operations.A decision was made in favour of solar energy, and thanks to the provider Total, the company has put solar energy at the heart of renewable energies on the island of Madagascar.
Total constructed and set up operation & maintenance of a photovoltaic installation on the roof of one of the industrial site's buildings. The panel has a capacity of approximately 300 kWp and was launched in 2018. Around 2000 m2 of solar panels will cover nearly 35% of the electricity needs of the entire industrial complex. If Total is committed to developing solar energy in Madagascar, Epsilon plans to increase its production capacity in the long-term following an evaluation and to potentially become 100% autonomous.
"Our commitment to Malagasy companies reaffirms Total Madagascar's promise to accelerate the ecological and economic turnaround of new energies, including solar energy. The project with EPSILON on the island of Madagascar is a good illustration of this."
