"Libres!" Trailer with English Subtitles

Posted Sunday 25 January 2015 by Eva Wissenz.

Energy is very closely connected to freedom. And private economy and freedom are contradictionary in many ways. So bring back the energy to people and we’ll have more freedom." Soren Hermansen, pioneer of Samso Island energy transition.

The island in Denmark is one of the renewable projects presented in this new documentary co-financed through crowd-funding. In all his films, Jean-Paul Jaud presents the long-term perspective of the consequences of our lives styles on our children’s lives. His documentary about massive use of pests in agriculture had a huge impact on people. GoSol.org is very happy to be a partner of this new film.

Partner Spotlight: BioSampo FREES

Posted Tuesday 6 May 2014 by Urs Riggenbach.

Currently we’re building a training program specific to Solar Fire Technologies with our partner KSAO BioSampo as well as integrate the technology into existing renewable energy training programs.

In Finnish mythology, the "Sampo" is a legendary magical object — perhaps a world tree, astrolab or something else entirely — that everyone is looking for and brings good fortune to the one who finds it. Renewable Energy is the Sampo of modern times and we’re excited to continue the search with the BioSampo team.

Shaping Education for a Sustainable, Renewable Future

With KSAO BioSampo we gained an innovative ally for spreading renewable energy access in the developing world. Their FREES programme aims to teach practical knowledge on renewable energies and train educators in kickstarting the green economy in the global south.

Currently, the BioSampo campus features a wide variety of sustainable technologies including PV, wind, biogas generation, biofuel distilling and esterification, and pyrolysis for charcoal and electricity generation. GoSol is to install solar thermal capacity on their campus, and provide support during the development of their curriculum.

Today, education in bio-energy and environmental technology is received only on an academic level, and there is a lack of practical know-how and realization. The BioSampo Training and Research Centre aims to change that. At GoSol we believe that solar thermal technology plays a key role in enabling renewable energy access. We are excited about the collaboration with BioSampo and FREES, their Finnish Renewable Energy Export School programme.
Contact us for any questions on this training program.
