Umeme Jua Ltd PV market development EAA has conducted market surveys
in six regions (Arusha, Kilimanjaro, Mwanza, Dar es Salaam, Morogoro and
Mbeya) of Tanzania for a Dutch-Tanzanian joint venture solar PV company.
The project established the market potential within the regions and designed
market development strategies for PV systems in regions based on survey
and charitable organisations IUCN, ITDG, the Shell Foundation, Winrock
International, Ashden Charitable Trust and others.
On-farm and non-farm Renewable Energy Technology Options This project
identified and promoted appropriate renewable energy technologies among
rural groups especially in agriculture, post harvest processing and business
enterprises on a sustainable commercial basis. Through participatory rural
appraisals (PRAs) the project was able to select appropriate RET applications
and develop potential projects for Winrock International.
Kenya - Energy for schools Project The Project aims to develop and implement mechanisms that will enable schools acquire appropriate and renewable energy technologies. The project is assessing energy supply and end use dynamics, recommending options to improve energy management and efficient end use and is facilitating the installation of appropriate renewable energy technologies through a tailor made credit scheme.
