In rural areas in developing countries, grid power supply is often not available. In those cases, people rely on other sources of energy for both domestic and productive use. The use of renewable energy sources is often feasible as a replacement of conventional energy sources like petrol, diesel, firewood or kerosene. This does not only reduce the pressure on the environment, but also offers better financial perspectives when for example combined with productive uses like small scale irrigation.
PRACTICA promotes technologies that are both technically as well as financially viable for the rural population. Where those technologies do not exist or can be improved, PRACTICA is initiating Research & Development trajectories.
With partner organizations, we sustainably introduce renewable energy solutions by giving support with for example technology selection, import, distribution and building an after-sales support network.
