About the webinar

International aid & health sector – How to widely deploy and make solar energy last?
Feedbacks, obstacles and recommendations

Based on the examples of solar infrastructure built by Build Health International (BHI) in various hospitals (Haiti, Niger, Canada) and the work of SolarAid in rural areas of Africa in particular, the aim of this webinar is to demonstrate that renewable energies, solar in particular, can be widely deployed and cover the needs of a large structure or a household. Issues of sizing, maintenance and local capacity building will be discussed with both speakers and webinar participants.
