Photovoltaic (PV) System

In view to enhance energy efficiency and promote environmental sustainability at the Mauritius Oceanography Institute (MOI), the Institution has installed Photovoltaic Renewable Energy System (solar panels) to partially meet its electrical energy requirement. The Photovoltaic (PV) System would generate electricity without burning petroleum-based fuel and emitting greenhouse gases and other pollutants, thus reducing the Institute's environmental impact in accordance with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Government’s vision on reducing greenhouse gases and restricting the use of fossil fuels. MOI is a research institution and we advocate for the protection and conservation of our planet by reducing our carbon footprint.
