The Energy Demonstration Trailer is a mobile showcase of renewable energy and energy efficient technologies. The trailer was developed by the Habitat Research and Development Centre in Namibia, with the intention to enhance awareness of sustainable energy alternatives. Our project involved preparing the trailer for use by expanding the trailer's educational capacities. We conducted three demonstrations with the trailer and assessed its performance and the audience's interactions. Modifications were made to the trailer based on the assessment, along with recommendations for additional improvements.
