Product Development Services

We are a team of engineers with experience in the design of electronic products oriented to inclusive energy access around the world, pushing the limits of efficiency and sustainability.

OpenPAYGO™ Suite Integration:

  • OpenPAYGO™ Token: Back-end paygo standard token integration for manufacturers to provide easier integration of their hardware towards paygo distributors (cloud gateway setup). You can also request our engineers to test and certify the integration performed on your own is compliant

  • OpenPAYGO™ Metrics: Data standardization for cloud metrification and development of hardware mechanisms for PAYGO metrification in different verticals (agro, gas, irrigation, energy, transportation, services)​

  • OpenPAYGO™ Link: Paygo industry standard and interoperable communication protocol integration for Token and Metrics cross-communication between paygo controllers and appliances. (Link allows to collect data from appliances as well as controlling the paygo status) 

Product Benchmarking: We assist paygo distributors and manufacturers in testing paygo products to assess a better market choice, benchmark performance and discover points of improvement

User documentation: We create graphical documentation for paygo distributors and final users to overcome language and cultural barriers

Packaging: Tailored compact packaging design to protect paygo products even under last-mile transportation

Energy access product design & development: Product and appliances design and engineering from concept to production

Firmware development & maintenance: We develop and upgrade firmware for energy access hardware integrating the latest industry standards.

Prototyping & PCB assembly: Mechanical and electronic prototyping services to assist product development

BOM Cost Optimization: We find the most competitive suppliers to reduce the cost of hardware fabrication (European and Chinese markets only)

OpenPAYGO Link

Brought to you by Solaris Offgrid and Efficiency for Access, it is a free and open source technology designed for SHS or appliance manufacturers willing to scale by adopting an interoperable communication protocol. 

We guide you through the complete process of bringing a product to life, from idea to market.

1 - IDEATION

Supported by field studies and market research that we perform alongside our partners around the world, we are able to present multiple design alternatives that combine different technologies, which let us offer a flexible unit cost at an early stage. Moreover, we provide essential visuals and schematics to establish a proper understanding of the concept.

2 - DESIGN

Based on our customer's requirements and their end clients' needs, we conceptualise and provide multiple design alternatives, keeping the customer always involved in the process in order to make a harmonic design of the product, integrating their brand language and marketing strategies.

3 - ENGINEERING

Our engineers take care of the electronic engineering and coding of all internal software and protocols in order to materialize a product that is smart, robust, secure and reliable while taking into consideration cost optimization strategies and trade-offs. They have experience assembling products for developing countries that can withstand harsh environmental conditions.

4 - VALIDATION

We carry out several rounds of mechanical and electronic tests that will assess the performance of the prototype, putting the product into operation in real scenarios with potential users to measure approval. In addition, we run external lab tests for specific metric measurements.

5 - MANUFACTURE

We carry out several rounds of mechanical and electronic tests that will assess the performance of the prototype, putting the product into operation in real scenarios with potential users to measure approval. In addition, we run external lab tests for specific metric measurements.
