At the dawn of the 21th century our energy system is undergoing fundamental change.
The convergence of renewable energy systems and communication technologies opens up the possibility of decentralized energy production, by placing the needs of the individual and the region at the core of a new organization.
The impact of fossil fuels on global warming and the growing scarcity of resources call for the emergence of a new approach to the energy systems of the future.
Based on these two imperatives, LANGA Group is daily engaged in developing renewable energy to help shape a new paradigm, underpinned by a genuine policy of sustainable development at regional level.
Rather than opposing forces, we see the environment and the economy as complementary. In our model, economic development and environmental protection come together to develop competitive renewable energy for the future.
LANGA Group strategy is:
• To establish and sustain recurring growth from photovoltaic and wind energy development.
• To promote and control regional development in the area of biomass and biogas.
• To strengthen Langa’s expertise and increase its lead in energy storage and technology transfer.
• In the international arena, to develop mid-sized PV and wind energy projects with integrated storage solutions, drawing on local expertise.
