In Senegal, INENSUS establishes a business model for village electrification with hybrid power systems in cooperation with the German utility EWE AG and the German Technical Cooperation (GTZ). The business model shall become a reliable basis for profitable investment of e.g. utilities in rural power supply with island networks. The project also comprises a wind and solar monitoring campaign in five Senegalese villages, socioeconomic analyses and the consideration of interests of all parties concerned. In parallel, the market for power supply of rural radio stations for mobile communication is being approached together with a large Senegalese partner company.
The GTZ office in Somalia shall be supplied by renewable energy sources. INENSUS carried out a design study about a wind-solar hybrid system to cover the electricity demand. Wind and solar monitoring back up the results of the study.
In Tanzania, a wind monitoring campaign was carried out at two different locations in order to collect data for the design of a village power supply system. The focus of the electric power system is pumping water for irrigation purposes.
