There are many ways you can be part of this project, and any source of collaboration is welcomed (social media, research, technical expertise, comercial references to relevant organizations, networking opportunities & other invitations, donations/financial support, etc.)

Implementation modalities:

Research on Potential for Energy Efficiency & Renewables, Project Proposal, Financing, Implementation of Project, and Local Capacity Building

We aim to provide clean energy for the city of Uganda, starting with the implementation of a clean source of energy to provide lighting in dwellings.

Deliverables:

Replacement of kerosene lighting in dwellings by renewable energy-sourced lighting solutions.
