More than a billion people still lack access to electricity, which for most of us is a basic need. While access to electricity is not a solution to poverty, it is a necessary actuator. The most alarming amount of these people live in rural areas of developing countries. The challenges entailed in geographical obstacles together with limited and volatile resources result in the need to develop tailored solutions for these conditions. This project, therefore, aims to empower those people by making use of modular solar home systems (SHS), offering a long-term and reliable solution. The first prototype of the modular SHS will be field tested in the near future in Ethiopia during a pilot project.
