"Energy and water for all in Cameroon and Africa"
Patrick Weti is a renewable energy engineer and start-up founder in Cameroon. His company OreoleTech wants to buy and sell solar systems. However, renewable energies are not yet popular in Cameroon – even though Patrick sees an enormous potential: "Solar energy is not only environmentally friendly, but also for free. Free access to electricity and hot water will no longer be a myth, but accessible to all levels of society." Patrick therefore invested his WIDU grant in equipment for his business - but also in marketing to increase the acceptance of solar systems in Cameroon.
