Rural Energy – Off-Grid Systems

In rural communities of Africa more than 95 percent of homes have no access to electricity. The only way to transform lives is to bring solar energy, mini hydro or biomass electricity to these areas. Globally, 1.5 billion people, one quarter of the world’s population, live without electricity, according to a United Nations report. We want to change this for Zambia.

Those who can afford any power at all spend large proportions of their income on char coal, kerosene for lamps or travel a lot to charge their batteries several times a week. Among those bringing solar power to the rural areas will give the peoples in Africa access to low-cost electricity. Most people are subsistence farmers, collect scarce firewood for cooking, go to sleep when it gets dark and hardly ever travel out of their own areas.

Access to television or radio or electricity for charging Mobile phones will life-changing for many people: It opens up the world for them.Solar Electricity is a product that can change lives: It can help keep families and shopkeepers safe, help students study at night, eradicate indoor pollution, and reduce worldwide carbon emissions.

How to help peoples to supply Rural Energy to peoples in Africa

The fact that the rural and urban poor needs mechanisms for ensuring affordability for energy services have been cited as the main push for decentralized energy supply. Renewable Energy is  part of the solution that can contribute to increasing access to modern energy services. 

 

Lack of access to energy is a cause of poverty, not just a result of poverty.
