    Dear Mr. Panfiglio,

    I’m contacting you on behalf of Creative Business Solutions. We think that a potential partnership with CBS would be both fitting and complementary.

    CBS, Creative Business Solutions is one of the most experienced consulting and project implementation organizations located in Tirana, Albania. CBS is a business consulting non-for profit organization that provides consultancy and implement solutions for local entrepreneurs, organizations, donors and financial institutions. Founded by professionals with national and international advanced expertise and extensive knowledge in projects implementation, CBS provides valuable and effective services generating economic growth for businesses through financial consulting and entrepreneurial capacity building in developing economy sectors, marketing and business development. We have strong expertise in social innovation in Rural Areas, SME’s and startups, green economy, Innovative Software Development, traditional and high quality of agro-food integrated chains, renewable energy.

    CBS’s previous experiences include large and complex projects with the main aim increasing economic growth as well as technical and business solutions offered mostly in agriculture, SME’s and financial field. CBS is a key partner with U.S. Agency for International Development USAID, and has on-going project implementation relationship with USAID through a number of strategic projects both locally and in the Balkan region.

    CBS also works with a number of distinct international organizations including, GIZ, Swiss Corporation/ Helvetas Swiss Intercooperation, Cooperazione Italiana and has a well-established institutional working relationship with local government authorities such as Ministry of Economy, Ministry of Urban Development, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and Water Resources, AIDA (Albanian Investment Development Agency). Also, CBS has partnership with largest banks in Albania such as: ProCredit Bank, Intesa SanPaolo Bank, Raiffeisen Bank, Credins Bank, and National Commercial Bank (BKT).

    We have some ideas for a proposal in Clean energy Solution (CES). The proposed CES is a solar PV powered water pumping and irrigation System in the south region of Albania in the agricultural value chain. The system will consist of a solar panel array, electrical motor, submersible and/ or surface pump and battery for storing electricity. The irrigation system in the fruit tree orchard in this region is mostly in place, and it is drip irrigation system in order to save water resources. Implementing such system will reduce the dependency from fossil fuels and the dependency from grid connectivity that in rural areas is accompanied by a lot of disruptions of electricity. The energy used will be clean energy and there will be a reduction in GHG emissions. This system is suitable for the farmers because it has low labor and maintenance costs and has a long life (20-40 years).

    Our proposed solution will help farmers to use energy and water resources better and in more effective way.
    It is forecasted (together with the farmers) that by implementing such system the products (fruit and vegetables) quality will increase and the productivity as well. This will bring increase of profits for farmers, decrease of operative costs, development and long-term sustainability.

    Should you be interested in a potential cooperation please contact to us at: fotjona.tace@cbs.al and info@cbs.al so we can discuss the collaboration in more detail. Attached please find an organizational brochure which lists some of our project experience. Also,for more information about us please visit our website: http://www.cbs.al

    Looking forward to hearing from you,
