Collaborative Development and Demonstration of an Optimised Model for Remote Village Electrification Using Renewable Energy
This project aims to develop and demonstrate a highly replicable model for remote village electrification in India, using solar PV and other technologies. In doing so, Partner countries plan to build capacity within India’s renewable energy technical service provider network, and also improve the technical support for, and increase the sustainability of decentralized generation and renewable energy systems. The community renewable energy systems model will demonstrate the reduction of GHG emissions through offsetting and potentially eliminating the need for conventional liquid petroleum fuels in a number of remote communities. The model will be implemented in a minimum of one and up to three rural villages in India, resulting in electricity provision for up to 1,200 people. Australia and India are participating Partners in this project.
