Third Mini-Grids Webinar Series Edition Announcement

The Mini-Grids Webinar Series 2019 by the Hydro Empowerment Network (HPNET) will hold again a public webinar on Tuesday, 17 September 2019 at 2:00 pm CEST! The topic will be on “Mini-Grid Sustainability: Transitioning to Enterprise-based Micro-Hydropower” Register here!

Collective research and hindsight within the Hydro Empowerment Network reveal that the long-term sustainability and impact of hydro mini-grids is dependent on how well the project is run as a viable and inclusive enterprise. This webinar – the 3rd in the series- will feature mini-grid practitioners in South and Southeast Asia who are leading the transition from grant dependent to enterprise based micro and mini-hydropower projects.  The webinar will present:

 

  • The Linkage between enterprise-based approaches and long-lived hydro mini-grids;
  • Best practices to transition from grant-dependent to local social enterprise models, based on micro hydro experience in Nepal, Malaysia, and Indonesia;
  • Solutions to scale their efforts to more micro hydro communities, including how to make better use of funding resources that currently go toward grant-dependent projects.
Presentations will be followed by a Q/A session open to all participants.

Risha Piya: Programm Specialist at Winrock International in Nepal.
Ayu Abdullah: Co-Founder and Regional Director for Southeast Asia at Energy Action Partners.
