Abstract

In Namibia, over 3800 unelectrified settlements will not receive grid power for 20 years. The Namibian government has proposed the implementation of privately-owned, institutionally-regulated renewable energy businesses to help provide energy services to these areas. The EPOGES toolkit, prepared for the Desert Research Foundation of Namibia, allows an entrepreneur to assess the market in an unelectrified area for the introduction of a renewable energy business. These businesses will provide income generation and accessible energy services to unelectrified communities.
