Battery Charging Services Using Solar Battery Charging Stations (Botswana)

Botswana

Titre : Battery Charging Services Using Solar Battery Charging Stations (Botswana)

Pays : Botswana

Numéro projet : BOT/OP3/2/06/01

Domaine : Climate Change Mitigation

Durée : 3/2006 — 12/2012

Bénéficiaire : Solar International Botswana

Présentation
The project aims at reducing environmental pressure and green house gas emissions by introducing solar battery charging services that will reduce the use of paraffin, disposable batteries and small petrol generators. Furthermore, the project will help in the dissemination of information on renewable energy by promoting a renewable energy technology that up to now has little exposure in Botswana, which if proved to be successful may be replicated in other villages. Moreover, it will support activities to lower perception barriers of the operators and users, and reduce technical barriers. Twelve Solar Battery Charging Stations (SBCS) will be made available shop owners, Village Development Committees, Non-Governmental Organisations and Community Based Organisations in rural villages that are not connected to the mains electric grid.
