providing "power" in the form of electricity is important, what that
elecricity "powers" in the form of education, helathcare and
agriculture is even more significant. This is the focus of the
PowerShare Campaign - to measure clean energy in terms of the number of
children attending school, the number of local jobs created, access to
the Internet, the availability of healthcare services in local clinics,
and many other indicators of sustainable community development.
Smart Microgrids are a central part of the PowerShare Campaign,
providing the tools and knowledge needed to produce, share and consume
clean energy cooperatively. The Campaign is designed to bridge the gap
between Government Programmes and the resources of Development Finance
Institutions (DFIs) such as the African Development Bank and the World
Synergent provides Microgrid equipment at
reduced costs to Rural Electrification projects in Nigeria, and
provides local training and "learning kits" to primary schools to
foster local participation.
