The power of data: assessing operational energy use in camps to inform the design of alternative renewable energy

Published by

This case study documents an energy data monitoring exercise performed as part of a wider feasibility study for renewable energy provision in Nyabiheke
Camp, Rwanda. 

It is part of the Renewable Energy for Refugees (RE4R) programme which aims to build the case for delivering renewable energy investments in humanitarian settings, working directly with refugees and host communities.

This case study was done as part of the RE4R Intervention IV: solar power for institutions, community facilities, and enterprises, whose objective was to support market-based supply of electricity to institutions and community facilities while mitigating the continuing usage of diesel and providing new (and equitable) access to those currently without electricity.
