Impact Assessment of the OSRAM Off-Grid Project in Kenya - Gerhard Mair

In Sub-Saharan Africa no more than 8% of rural households are connected to the electric grid, in Kenya 4.6% and in the study area, Suba District, only 0.5%. 93% of the households use kerosene for lightning. A regenerative alternative for lightning, communication, as well as, drinking water supply, is therefore evaluated. Through a redesigned and locally adapted use of photovoltaic technology in OSRAM Energy Hubs, costs and amounts of energy services used in households, business and the fishing sector can be reduced.
