Through interaction with the community and planning officials from the City of Cape Town, we identified key issues with energy services in informal settlements in Cape Town, South Africa. Electricity access is insufficient, and heating and cooking methods are expensive and dangerous. We proposed solutions for both immediate improvement and long term redevelopment. These ideas culminated in a proposal for a centralized energy facility, which would provide essential services and products to the community, and serve as a way to introduce alternative energy practices.
