Standard Chartered launch Express Banking Centre in Lobatse

Standard Chartered Botswana has launched the Express Banking Centre, the first for Botswana both as a banking distribution channel and a showcase in renewable energy. The Express Banking Centre, located at the Hillside Mall in Lobatse, is one of four in the entire country and the first that is powered by solar energy and partially constructed from a previously-used shipping container.

The Express Banking Centre is powered by 16 tier 1 solar modules that can generate enough energy to power two average size houses. This setup will generate approximately 11,500 Kilo Watt Hours of energy per year. This Express Banking Centre will also displace 3.8 tons of greenhouse gases per year, which directly contributes to Botswana’s Paris Climate Agreement targets to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 15% by 2030.
