"Energy in the community"

 

Much work has been done by development agencies and local partners to encourage children to engage with education. However, one of the challenges faced by young students living in both rural and urban settings is the lack of, and/or infrequent access to reliable power supplies.

Appropriate technolgy at macro / micro scale can make a difference in access to power. This is an innovation in off grid energy supply in Bolivia. Solar panels are located on the ground with mirrors increasing efficiency by up to 30%. The photo also shows the system being used to heat water in addition to generating power. Such innovations can add significant value by allowing a "do it yourself" approach which facilitates local communities accessing power supplies.
