            I am industrial Engineer and  Technical consultant consultant in  Electricity , Energy   and  LED solutions . I have been working for more than 10 years in Electrical installation systems design and construction .

            Sustainable stainable development requires the involvement of all . Having analyzed the impact of my field of activity on global warming , climate change, health , poverty , natural disasters, I decided to focus my activities to projects contributing to reduction  of  emission of greenhouse gases .

            I believe that  Renewable Energy  and Energy Efficiency practice are "non regret " solutions for  energy access and climate  warming mitigation .

                        I am Alvaro HIDALGO, and I am the founder CEO of the startup yiitidi.

                        Yiitidi : Connecting Communities

                        We provide Access to Communications & Access to Energy to those who are isolated.

                        We deliver turnkey franchised standalone hubs: Mobile Towers fed by Photovoltaic mini-plants that also  deliver electricity through PAYG (Micro-Grids) to isolated communities.   Further information is available at www.yiitidi.com


                        Gender & Energy issues are of particular importance for our project, not only from the point of view of demand (households, small businesses) but also from the operational one. Indeed, women are the most affected by blackouts & brownouts and bringing them into different tasks to survey of operations is an concept that we are analyzing (meters inspection, groups for the avoidance of electricity theft etc)
