Our Impact

Thirty years ago, we began by responding to the need for safe blood storage solutions in conflict zones. Today, our varied portfolio sees us troubleshooting large scale solar systems for the UN in Afghanistan, helping to combat pneumonia with our solar powered oxygenators in The Gambia and kitting out entire medical centres with solar power in Bangladesh. Wherever we are, our ambition is to make a substantial positive impact on individuals, communities and the environment.

Putting up a solar PV panel

Growing out of the Centre for Alternative Technology in 1982, Dulas was founded with the mission of using renewable energy to save lives and resources.

Established as a workers’ co-operative we are proud to be continuing that mission today.

Reaching the furthest child

As a workers’ cooperative, we strongly supported the work and aims of the Millennium Development Goals, in particular the drive to improve maternal and child health.

We continue to tackle the work of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals that were formulated to continue the progress of the Millennium Goals. They include the following:

  • No Poverty
  • Zero Hunger
  • Good Health and Well-Being
  • Quality education
  • Gender equality
  • Clean water and sanitation
  • Affordable and clean energy
  • Decent work and economic growth
  • Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
  • Reduced Inequalities
  • Sustainable cities and communities
  • Responsible consumption and production
  • Climate action
  • Life below water
  • Life on Land
  • Peace and Justice: Strong Institutions
  • Partnerships for the Goals

Saving lives

Our solutions support major immunisation programmes, bring power to healthcare centres in remote locations and help to provide basic sanitation and clean water supply where it is most needed. The in-country training solutions we deliver ensure that local cold chain technicians can continue to maintain the systems and support primary healthcare services long after our engineers have left the site.

We can proudly say that our solar technology, experience and expertise genuinely saves lives.

Saving resources

The solar power solutions we provide are equipped to overcome the practical obstacles faced in areas with unreliable or non-existent power networks, as well as meeting humanitarian and medical challenges often faced by those in healthcare centres in unindustrialised locations.

This area of our work includes a solar PV diesel hybrid solution, which uses PV to significantly reduce the fuel used and carbon emitted by generators and saving your organisation money in the process.

Solving problems

Bringing sustainable power to remote locations in developing countries is rarely straightforward. Our specialist team has a track record of solving problems with innovative thinking. For example, we developed our battery powered oxygenator along-with the UK Medical Research Council at a research centre in The Gambia show how creative solutions can overcome major challenges.
