“Our ultimate goal is to achieve greater affordability through multi‐vector mini-grids, which will combine several energy vectors (e.g., electricity, thermal energy, transportation, and also water/food supply) in one energy supply system, fully exploring locally available sustainable energy resources (e.g. solar, biomass, wind, hydro, etc.) and specifics of energy demands of rural Kenyan communities.” - Dr. Sasa Djokic, Reader, The University of Edinburgh
The project aims to give Kenyan rural communities access to sustainable and affordable energy supplies from mini-grids that can use multiple local renewable energy resources and are capable of scaling up with growing demand. The project will co-design these local energy models with selected rural communities.
