“Biogas is a life changer for millions of rural households. Remote sensing technology is the solution to many of the current hurdles that holds back large scale adoption of biogas digesters. SimGas is the first company to develop and test remote sensors on a commercial scale that provide our customer care centre with live data on the performance of the digesters. With this data we can significantly improve our customer service, preventive maintenance, payment offering, products and carbon monitoring. With the support of the GSMA Utilities Grant, this is now becoming a reality!” Sanne Castro, Founder and CEO
