2014 SEPS Call in Southern and South East Asia

News from WISIONS posted on September 16th, 2014

Our 2014 SEPS call is still open for applications! On this occasion we are looking for project concepts that demonstrate how to apply (small-scale) renewable energy technologies to improve the productivity, environmental performance and social integration of food value chains. Additionally, we are also looking for exchange activities that can strengthen the capabilities of practitioners and local organizations working in the field of applied renewable energy technologies in food value chains. The deadline for the submission of applications is 29th October 2014, 3 pm GMT.Read moreMinimize

For a list of countries in Southern and South East Asia see the UN definition.

You can apply for project support if your project or exchange concept demonstrates how renewable energy technologies can be integrated into food value chains not only to minimise the negative environmental impacts (e.g. the contamination of soil and water), but also to improve the social and economic capital (e.g. greater employment opportunities) of the local population in Southern and South East Asia.

Find more information on the application process and application criteria here. For a list of previous SEPS projects, go to SEPS Energy Projects

Meet the WISIONS team at the conference „Energy and Water solutions in sub-Saharan Africa“ at Lake Constance, Germany

News from WISIONS posted on October 9th, 2014

The WISIONS team will be participating in the conference “Energy and Water solutions in sub-Saharan Africa”, which will take place on 16 - 17 October 2014 in Radolfzell at Lake Constance, Germany.Read moreMinimize

Today, 1.3 billion people worldwide are living without access to electric grid-based energy. In Africa alone, about 70% of the total population relies on fossil fuel based systems for lighting such as kerosene lamps and diesel generators. Rural areas of developing countries without a proper grid access also often lack access to other basic needs such as potable water and educational opportunities.

Against this background, the WISIONS team will present a keynote lecture on "Decentralised solutions for renewable energies and water in developing countries". The conference is being organized in the framework of the project "Solar Energy for rural Kenya" supported by the European Union. This project emerged from one of the projects supported by SEPS, which aimed to replace kerosene lights for night fishing by introducing energy hubs to power sustainable lighting systems at Lake Victoria, Kenya.
