E.quinox

Category: Charitable

Engineers and entrepreneurs from ALL disciplines: We Want You! e.quinox is a student-led, humanitarian organisation which hopes to bring cost-effective and renewable energy to developing countries. We are actively involved in the research and development of innovative, sustainable and affordable generation & distribution technologies to power some of the poorest communities in the world.

The project is now in its 7th year and so far we have provided electricity to about 400 households in Rwanda and Tanzania through our Energy Kiosk and Stand-alone solutions, and also through new methods continuously being developed. It is our aim to bridge the gap between the classroom and the real world. Over the past summers, e.quinox members travelled to Rwanda to implement what we have achieved over the years, this included improving our hydro kiosk, manufacturing more battery boxes with the locals, and also upgrading our existing Kiosks to provide real-time data to us back here in London. This year, e.quinox will be further improving the Kiosk management introducing a brand new intelligent Kiosk system and improve our Pay as You go product.

Of course it's not just about engineering, business and marketing are the key areas of e.quinox! So if you want to learn some new skills, make some friends AND use you knowledge to help the world, we hope to meet you in our teams soon!
