Our Activities

Working Philosophy


Our objective is to manage the institute as an interdisciplinary center for applied research and project development aimed at improved electrification in remote rural areas. Based on a multi-stakeholder approach, we strive for a broad and intense cooperation with numerous partners. As well as local institutions in the target countries, this may also include companies, universities, associations, aid organizations and NGOs within a global context.


The institute was established in spring 2012 to build an organizational platform for off-grid electrification projects and for the related educational activities on local levels. With the help of an organizational body, we will be able to bundle the know-how of experts and to coordinate their activities within a broad project umbrella and in a very effective way. Scaling up activities is of great importance to meet the requirements of the respective United Nations initiative entitled "Min-Electricity Access Program".
