Abstract

This project presents an assessment of the energy demand management at the Gobabeb Research and Training Centre. The Centre operates the first solar-diesel hybrid energy system in Namibia and serves as a role model for the development of similar systems throughout the country. Our team developed a set of recommendations for the Centre to improve the system’s technical operation and capacity and establish an energy education program and cost recovery plan.
