August 2014 - August 2016

Funding entity Iberdrola

Participated by MIT Energy Initiative, Energy without Borders


Advanced methods will be applied to the design of the micro-grid and for the expansion of the number of loads connected to it. Ad-hoc studies will comprise the early involvement of the community in the co=design process, the characterization of sustainable business models and the proposal of a suitable regulatory and enabling environment. Based on the experience gained with the pilot project, this proposal also includes a study to extend the concept to a large number of rural schools (potentially several thousand), either in Rwanda or in another country with similar characteristics.
