Smart Grids for Small Grids Together with partners TONIBUNG and SIBAT we are designing new open-source technology to make micro-grids more reliable and easier for local practitioners to manufacture and repair in-country.
Chlorine Management System In collaboration with Oregon State University, we are designing technology to automatically monitor and dispense chlorine in community-scale water systems, addressing an ongoing need for reliable water treatment in low-resource communities.
DREAM Tool Through the Power Partnership we created an app for remote data collection that allows community service providers to understand their energy needs without having technical expertise. We now work with providers to deploy the app and create energy installation plans.
Sabah RE2 Roadmap With three long-time partners in Malaysia, we formed a coalition to work with the Sabah state government to prioritize renewable energy in their state energy plan. We are working together to ensure that at least half of the unelectrified remote area villages in Sabah implement renewable energy mini-grids by 2027.
