The Renewable Energy for Refugees (RE4R) programme assessed energy access in Gihembe, Kigeme, and Nyabiheke refugee camps in Rwanda. 

During the assessment phase of the programme, Practical Action conducted hundreds of surveys, interviews and focus group discussions with camp residents, business owners, community leaders, and organisational staff to help identify the most important energy issues in the camps. 

This policy brief presents the main findings and recommendations from the RE4R assessments and the four renewable energy interventions being implemented in the three camps.
