Upcoming Demos: You’re Invited to Join Us at APL Italia HQ in Terni, Italy or in Nairobi, Kenya

APL will be hosting two special demonstrations of our products around the world this month. In Terni, Italy, we’ll be offering (limited) availability of our new PP 25 EU to all European customers. And in Nairobi, Kenya, we’ll have the first exhibition of open skid v5 Power Pallet in East Africa, on the occasion of a microgrid conference.  Details are below.  We hope you will come and see us.

European Customers Demo: Terni, Italy, November 14th
Over 70 Italian customers joined us a few weeks ago in Terni Italy for the debut of new PP25 EU Power Pallet.  Now we’ve planned a special demo event for the rest of Europe on Friday, November 14th. [Note-since this post originally appeared, APL Itaila is now hosting demo events every Friday].

Sales  of the PP 25 EU have previously been limited to Italian customers.  Now we’re happy to announce limited availability of the PP25EU to our customers throughout the rest of Europe as well.  (You can download the lastest fact sheet here, and see a comparison of the PP20 and PP25.)


Attendees will see a machine running with the continuous feed and grid tie systems in place.  We will give a presentation on the state of the technology, as well as various options for purchase and project development.  Those interested in becoming Authorized Representatives will have their questions answered and be able to meet the people they’d be working with.  We plan to have 4- 5 staff from APL US on site for the event, as well as 4-5 from APL Italia.

The event is at the SLO Factory Agriturismo, between Terni and Reiti, about 90 minutes outside of Rome.  We will start at 1pm and continue until sundown, at which time we will break for dinner (as is required in Italy).  The address is: Il MoggioVia Piave, 23, 02100 Rieti. 

Please RSVP to if you plan to join us.   If you can’t make it and want more info about purchasing the new PP25 EU Power Pallet, please write us at for Italy, for the rest of the EU

Nairobi, Kenya, November 18-20.


For those of you in East Africa who have long wanted to see our Version 5 PP20 in person, here’s an opportunity to do so. We’re exhibiting and on a panel at the African Micro Grids Summit at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Nairobi November 18-19.

We will have a unit on display at the hotel (details on whether we can do a live demo still up to the hotel-stay tuned), before we install it upcountry at the Turkana Basin Institute. You can learn about the event at this link, although you don’t need to attend to come see the Power Pallet.

This is a great chance for the many of you who have been contemplating a project to discuss the particulars. APL’s CEO JIm Mason and Director of Strategic Initiatives Tom Price will both be on hand all week to meet; please email to make an appointment to join us.


APL & Partner Win
Powering Africa Off Grid Challenge


APL’s Ghanaian project partner at the Kumasi Institue of Tropical Agriculture, or KITA, has been named one of the winners of the Powering Africa Off Grid Challenge, sponsored by the US Africa Development Fund and GE.

The prize funds will be used to install a Power Pallet in a remote village that currently has no electricity. During the day it will enable mechanical processing of palm kernels for oil production, and at night will provide the community’s first streetlights.

We’re delighted to be a part of this project and look forward to installing our first Power Pallet in Ghana next March.

Can’t Get To Terni or Nairobi?
How About Berkeley?

If your travel plans this month don’t include Italy or Kenya, perhaps you’ll be able to join us at our home base in the East Bay. Next Friday, November 14th, marks our monthly open house, the last one of the year.


From 5-7pm we’ll welcome you with warm food and drink in our dry ( if chilly ) factory. We may also try to webcast it again as we have in the past–we’ll advise if so and how to tune in. So we can plan how many to host, please click here to pre-register. Questions? Contact
