Green Drinks Kigali and the RMap team – a project of Columbia University  would like to invite you to join us from 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm on Monday, May 23rd at Impact Hub Kigali for an exciting discussion on “Expanding Energy Access Off-the-Grid: Lessons from Electrifying the Health Sector.”


Off-grid access is growing by leaps, and with the new off-grid strategy, and SREP funds, this progress will continue to accelerate.  All of the focus has been on households.  This event will consider what we can learn about sustainable electrification of public institutions by studying the electrification of health clinics. With a group of experienced practitioners, we will consider what lessons can we take from the success of household electrification business models that might apply to public institutions?


In addition, Professor Travis Bradford, Director of Energy and Environment Concentration at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs, and an internationally recognized solar industry expert, will give a keynote on global examples of public and private cooperation to expand energy access through solar power. Finally, the Columbia RMap team of graduate students will present results of a survey on the use of energy - especially distributed generation technologies - at health centers in the Nyabihu district and solicit feedback on the usefulness of the data collection tool and its output.


The event will be interactive and allow for active discussion between a diverse group of practitioners.
