New paper: Exploring an Affordable Solar Home System Design

Our paper, Developing for developing nations: Exploring an affordable solar home system design, written in collaboration with our colleagues of EWI is on line!

Developing technological solutions for the developing nations is more than simply re-sizing a prevalent solution from the developed world. Not only the environmental conditions, but also the technology usage varies greatly between the developing nations in sunnier latitudes around the world and the developed nations of north-western Europe. In our paper we shed light on the various technical and non-technical factors to be considered for designing a standalone PV system for low-income households in emerging economies.
