Talk: Off-Grid Power Systems in Developing Countries
November 27, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Summary: Approximately 1.1 billion people worldwide lack access to the electricity grid. This form of energy poverty disproportionately afflicts those living in less economically developed countries, primarily in Sub-Saharan Africa and southern Asia. Achieving universal electrification through grid extension is optimistically decades away and might never be a viable option in rural areas. Instead, many communities will rely on off-grid electricity solutions in the form of renewable energy-powered microgrids. This presentation describes the role of microgrids and other off-grid solutions in providing electricity access. Technical design examples from microgrids in Zambia will presented.
