Recent News - Jun. 1, 2015

The Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) awarded an Impact Award to Simpa Networks May 19th, 2015 for their work providing accessible renewable energy to communities in developing countries. Synapse worked with Simpa to develop the preliminary prototype of the embedded hardware component of the Progressive Purchase™ platform called The Simpa Regulator™. Synapse assembled the electrical hardware components, developed the firmware, and obtained a suitable mechanical enclosure to house the prototype, used as a tool for user studies and concept demonstrations. The result is a secure, low-cost, intuitive, rugged, and tamper proof device that allows Simpa to bring pay-as-you-go solar energy to communities in rural India. Simpa networks mission is a commendable one, with access to energy, comes access to opportunity. The Synapse community congratulates Simpa Networks on this well-deserved award!
