EnGreen is always trying to bridge the gap between research, cooperation and field actions to advance towards universalaccess.
We are very excited to have partnered with ICEI – Istituto Cooperazione Economica Internazionale who is leading the development of the TERESA project together with Politecnico di Milano – Department of Energy.
The TERESA project, funded by Fondazione Cariplo, stands for TEchnology for Rural Electrification in sub-Saharan Africa – it aims at combining advanced mo technology energy development deling tools with a user-friendly data visualization platform to facilitate decision-making in electrification planning. The tools will be applied to develop an electrification master plan for the Zambezia province of Mozambique, which will remain “at the service of local and international stakeholders”.
TERESA intends to consolidate international cooperation relations between key stakeholders engaged in the rural electrification of developing countries (local public institutions, civil society and research institutes) and provide a concrete contribution to the path of universalization of access to energy in Mozambique.
EnGreen supports this effort by providing data inputs for the software from the Zambezia province and contributes to training workshops with local stakeholders. Moreover, we will provide also desk-based support in reviewing and validating the model, to make a stronger case for “data-driven, replicable and scalable strategies for accessing energy”.
