SEMWaves was formed in 2018 with the goal of providing renewable energy technologies to accelerate rural electrification.
In 2019, we conducted a GCRF funded survey into the energy usage habits of villagers in the Chittagong Hill Tracts, Bangladesh.
Seeing widespread dissatisfaction with Solar-Home-Systems (SHSs), poor energy availability, and excessive costs, we developed a proprietary design for an all-weather low-cost sustainable microgrid.
In 2020, we receivied a larger grant from InnovateUK in order to deploy a demonstration of our technology. In Q1 2021 we turned the lights on for the first time, bringing power to a hundred houses, businesses, and places of worship.
In Q3 2021 we received a InnovateUK grant to explore our products potential in similar regions. Through 2022 we will be identifying candidate villages for our microgrids and securing public & private sector partnerships.
