Description

In cooperation with local micro- and small energy enterprises, at least three energy services for better energy supply provided by renewable energies and the increase of energy efficiency will be developed and tested. These services are for the target group of poor and disadvantaged households. A loan model is being developed in cooperation with financial institutions that will provide access to these energy service to poor families through low, initial investment. The loan repayments should be ensured by savings on energy costs.
