A conviction to move in the right direction towards the world using renewable energy efficienty and routinely, that is the mission of AXSOL. The AXSOL Team consists of optimists, realists, idealists, lateral thinkers and makers, that have one thing in common – they aim to make the world a better place, piece by piece. It is our dedicated goal to make portable power that was generated in a sustainable and responsible way an inherent part of every household. Places that have not been connected to power by now will most definitely not get connected the common way anymore in the forseeable future. AXSOL uses all their energy to make sure that every human being that requires power can take it with them to these places – cost-effective and sustainable.
