600 million people (about 60.7% of the population) are without electricity, 50% of businesses view a lack of reliable access to electricity as a major constraint to doing business
We are creating a living energy laboratory for alternative energy research and technology. Our focus is on developing and deploying sustainable and renewableenergy technologies as well as providing technical support for businesses in this sector.
Some of our activities in this area include:
- Production of fuel from waste biomass like agricultural residues
- Scaling up and deployment of solar energy technologies for lighting up of rural communities
- Adaptation and deployment of micro hydro- powered and biogas technologies
