Open electricity grid optimisation: Das neue Projekt open_eGo30. September 2015
GIS based analysis of project areas and customer tagging2. October 2015
Global data sets about population distribution and satellite imagery of light at night allow to estimate where non-electrified population lives and distinguish the optimum electrification strategy for each location. Possible options are grid extension, mini-grids and small standalone solutions.

Within this project GIS-based tools are developed to estimate the size of population in on- and off-grid regions of Kenya. Based on these findings different electrification strategies are developed for each location.
