Our Vision and Approach
Elēkrŏn integrates renewable energy and smart home technologies into the home design process to create a net zero carbon emissions systems for the basic needs of the inhabitants. By managing all aspects of the design, we provide an integrated design for our customers.
The innovation derived from creating these sustainable smart homes will then be expanded into creating net zero carbon emissions neighborhoods and eventually cities. The end game is to apply this to the whole island of Mauritius.
Elēkrŏn has the vision to lead the sustainable efforts in order to transform Mauritius into a net zero carbon emissions economy by 2050.
