Renewable Energy

Progetto concluso

The "Rural Electrification through Renewable Energy Development" (RERED) programme will  demonstrate the viability of renewable energy based decentralised power generation (REDG) with a long term sustainability perspective, taking into account potential grid integration. This will require establishing viable community managed REDG plants, and influencing policies to ensure a regulatory framework favourable to operation and maintenance of REDG plants. Such plants shall be seen as long term investments towards the social and economic development of the region. Their integration into the grid shall allow the plant to act not only as a source of energy for local households, but also a source of revenue for local development. Through the proposed community involvement and a primary focus on household electrification, the standard of living of the communities will also be improved. In this programme, the initial focus will be on micro/mini hydro power (MHP) and biomass gasification power (BGP). The major contribution of the project will be in terms of capacity building, social engineering, and technical and policy developments.
