We’re pleased to share with you the new Smart Villages « pocket guide » to rural energy and development!
This pocket guide is intended as a quick reference to off-grid technologies, policies, and impacts – including stories of successful village energy projects from across the global south.
For remote off-grid villages, local solutions are often both more realistic and cheaper than national grid extension.
Together, energy and entrepreneurship underpin lasting development in smart villages, alongside the many services they can propel: health, education, WASH, livelihoods and productive uses of energy… and beyond.
