On August 5th we conducted together with our partnership network Wind Empowerment a webinar about insights to our research and projects in Peru on small wind energy for electrification of rural off-grid communities.

Off-grid electrification solutions powered by renewable energy technologies are increasingly recognized as the most suitable alternative for reaching a great portion of the 800 million people lacking access to electricity today. In regions with suitable wind resources, and with appropriate planning, off-grid small wind turbines can provide significant contributions to closing the energy access gap.
- How can the potential contribution of small wind for electrification schemes be assessed?
- What should be considered in order to ensure that small wind turbines effectively contribute to close the energy access gap?
- How can the benefits of small wind power be maximised?
