How Green Power is Driving Rural Africa
Here is a fantastic developmental clip looking at a small-scale project in rural Kenya.
The project is looking to fostering sustainable development via green energy. In a continent where 650 million people still don't have access to electricity, via solar-powered mini-grids, this might offer a solution that significantly enhances people's developmental prospects.
It looks at the multiple ways that mini-grids can supply power in a way that is affordable for Africa's rural poor: as the clip highlights, the problem really is one which revolves around the age-old chicken-egg conundrum. In this case, start-up, Powerhive, is hoping that help establishing businesses will then allow its communities to become rich enough to afford their energy.
Just so much to marvel at - not least the power of markets to enhance development.
