Elephant Energy Shops will benefit 70,000 people in the Caprivi region of Namibia by providing access to quality small-scale renewable energy technologies such as solar lights among others.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
There is a staggering humanitarian challenge posed by the energy impoverished. Despite significant aid, two billion people live without electricity and continue to use traditional forms of energy such as fuelwood. Critical unmet energy needs involve livelihood activities such as cooking, cropping, water purification, communication and income generation. These activities are linked to the broader development issues of health, education, environmental protection and economic development.
How will this project solve this problem?
The Elephant Energy Shops project will provide the necessary renewable energy technologies to help alleviate the energy poverty that exists in the Caprivi region of Namibia and improve the standard of living for nearly 70,000 inhabitants.
Potential Long Term Impact
The Elephant Energy Shops project will be a step towards alleviating the energy poverty of the region, improving the lives of nearly 70,000 people. It will provide a model that can be replicated throughout Namibia and Africa.
