Illuminating rural Africa: Increased dissemination of solar energy technologies for rural electrification

Accelerating universal energy access in Ethiopia and Kenya through the use of decentralized solar energy technologies, to enhance electricity access and develop entrepreneurship in rural communities

Nairobi, Kenya - 11 June 2014
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia: 19-20 May 2014

TERI, with its long experience in the research and dissemination of solar PV technologies, has extended its expertise and services to the African continent for lighting up homes of thousands of people that do not have access to clean light with solar lanterns, under the aegis of its flagship programme 'Lighting a Billion Lives' (LaBL).

With support from DFID India, TERI is implementing an energy access project in two selected countries in Africa - Ethiopia and Kenya. The objective is to identify barriers to promotion of clean energy options in Sub Saharan Africa, share lessons and best practices from the Indian context in the area of policy, regulation, financing, and technology and delivery models and demonstrate the techno-social viability of the decentralized solar energy applications and improved cook-stoves to bring improved quality of life to the rural households in the region.

It is in this context, that a collaborative workshop on 'Dissemination of Solar Energy Technology for Rural Electrification: Challenges and Opportunities" was held by TERI jointly with the Horn of Africa Regional Environment Centre and Network (HoAREC) and The African Centre for Technology Studies (ACTS), in Ethiopia and Kenya respectively.
