Event - Session 1: Field Stories - Presenting Solutions to Improve Household Electricity Access
- Energy Access
The sessions will showcase the lessons learned and good practices from five implemented household electricity access projects, which will include:
Solar power plant and dispensers, Jordan; Mini-grid, Kenya; Solar home system (SHS), Rwanda; Solar lamp, solar products, Kenya; and Combined Solar Home System and E-cooker, Uganda.
The sessions will follow a similar structure by addressing project-specific attributes that led to the preferred solution. They will aim to answer the question: why was this particular solution chosen to deliver energy access in this context? As such, the presentations will:
Review what demand and supply requirements led to the chosen solution. Describe the various aspects of the solution, including: The technical aspects; The partnerships (team) that were built to successfully deliver the project; The subsidies and financing mechanisms that were used to deliver the desired price; and The implemented electricity and revenue model. Present outcomes and lessons learned in relation to livelihood, protection, sustainability and resilience.In addition, in the third virtual session the GPA Coordination Unit will, based on the conclusions from these projects, present a pre-feasibility solutions simulation, which we would like to trial with partners.
