True, we need IT to communicate, coordinate and manage our daily tasks. But do you use the right IT solution that really solves your unique problems?

We, the developers of energypedia, are development practitioners ourselves and understand that your work in this sector requires an appropriate software solution that is flexible, economic and fair. Software should not be yet another time-killer, but should save time for what really matters in our jobs.

This is the reason why we developed energypedia. Our software is the perfect tool-kit for results-based monitoring, reporting, knowledge management and more. Our software ...

  • is very flexible,
  • follows an open approach,
  • is designed for organizations and projects in the field of development cooperation
  • helps you to manage your data in a single user-friendly system.

An internal workspace within energypedia is a password protected wiki area which allows your working group, project or organisation to make your teamwork more efficient. Any owner of a workspace can determine who can get access to the respective wiki.

The software behind energypedia is called MediaWiki. MediaWiki is a powerful knowledge and project management software for projects and organizations. Knowledge is key. However, essential knowledge is often either implicit knowledge of individuals shared only in direct communication or is scattered and “hidden” in emails and files.

Our software helps you to coordinate your team and to quickly find the information that you are looking for. There is a better way than emails to share publications, lessons learnt, workshop results and new ideas: In our IT toolboxyou find a wide range of applications to tackle challenges of project and knowledge management. You can mix & match those tools that you need.

To get a closer look at our software, you can request a free brochure with all the details here, or simply request a free guest account here, and test the software by yourself!

Do not hesitate to contact us if you are interested in your own Wiki Workspace!
