Especially in sun-rich areas, solar energy is a sensible form of renewable energy generation. However, start-up financing for solar projects often lacks. For this reason, atmosfair supports solar projects that cannot get off the ground without funding support. Moreover, these projects must meet the highest demands in terms of ecologically and socially sustainable development within the project country.
