Lawino, Marilyn (author)
Decision-making about sustainable energy development often constitutes not only choices about which technology to adopt but also the dependencies of these technological choices on the social, economic and political helms within the context they are applied. For Uganda, juggling some of the country’s innate challenges like poverty and lack of...

Rural electrification remains a significant challenge for engineers, given its intricate relationship with multiple issues, including geographical constraints and underdeveloped infrastructural provisions. As a result, with the development of Solar Home Systems (SHS) and direct current (DC) microgrids, DC systems for energy access have emerged...

Electricity access is an important issue and building capacity for it requires drawing relevant lessons from past policies. In this study, we evaluate the effect of the Jyotigram Yojana, or the lighted village scheme, a supply-side policy intervention during 2003–08 to increase rural electricity access in Gujarat, India. We hypothesize that...

This thesis focuses on analysing, troubleshooting and testing a USB-C to AC Inverter with USB-C power delivery, as well as implementing control- and protection systems for the flyback converter and implementing the H-Bridge switching control. The starting point of this project is a design that has already been manufactured as a PCB by DC...

This article seeks to examine the material implications of the emergence of an energy justice (energi berkeadilan) vision in Indonesia, paying particular attention to the state's spatial practice to achieve such a vision in the form of rural electrification programs including the deployment of off-grid decentralised renewables. Informed by semi...

Echeverry, Jesse (author)
Roughly 840 million people, predominately from rural communities in sub-Sahara Africa, still lack access to electricity. The direct current (DC) microgrid is an emerging grid infrastructure that meshes efficiently with DC based technology such as photovoltaics, batteries, consumer electronics, and electric vehicles. This characteristic of DC...

Witteveen, Beer (author)
A large portion of the global population, mostly in the Sub-Saharan African region, still has no access to electricity. Due to the remoteness and limited accessibility of some communities, off-grid solutions such as mini-grids are required to electrify these regions. An essential part of such an isolated mini-grid is the energy storage system....

Nearly 840 million people still lack access to electricity, while over a billion more have an unreliable electricity connection. In this article, the three different electrification pathways-grid extension, centralized microgrids, and standalone solar-based solutions, such as pico-solar and solar home systems (SHS)-are critically examined...

Narayan, N.S. (author)
Almost a billion people globally lack access to electricity. For various reasons, grid extension is not an immediately viable solution for the un(der-) electrified communities. As most of these electricity-starved regions lie in tropical latitudes, the use of off-grid solar-based solutions like solar home systems (SHS) is a logical approach....

Access to electricity is a key actuator in order to tackle poverty in areas of limited resources. While the population without access to electricity has a decreasing tendency, still almost 1 billion people continue to live without this basic amenity. This thesis has been carried out at the company DC Opportunities as part of the rural...

Off-grid solar home systems (SHSs) currently constitute a major source of providing basic electricity needs in un(der)-electrified regions of the world, with around 73 million households having benefited from off-grid solar solutions by 2017. However, in and of itself, state-of-the-art SHSs can only provide electricity access with adequate...

Boldrini, Nicola (author)
Margot Wallstrom once argued that there can be no sustainable development without sustainable energy development. Despite several organizations already recognized that (rural) electrification leads to socio-economic developments and improvements related to health, productivity and education in 2013, 1.2 billion people – half of which in Africa –...

Within the areas of distributed, off-grid, and decentralized energy, there is a growing interest in local energy exchanges. A crucial component of an energy exchange is a return provided by an energy-receiver to an energy-giver for the energy provided. The existing energy literature on such returns is primarily limited to monetary returns and...

The electrification ratio of Sumba Island has been increased in the past five years from about 24.5% in 2010 to about 43% 2015 in which 55% of the share supplied by renewable energy resources (Hivos, 2015). Despite the progress on electrification ratio, there are still about 238 out of 433 villages which do not have electricity access (PLN, 2017...

Solar Home Systems (SHSs) can fulfil the basic energy needs of the globally unelectrified population. With costs as one of the biggest barriers for SHS uptake, optimizing the system size with energy needs is crucial. Where most solutions focus only on the present needs, this work also addresses the future energy needs. The methodology includes...

Today 19% of the global population has no access to electricity. Most of these people live in rural areas. These 1,4 billion people would benefit from electricity access for five reasons: their health, education, local economy, sense of safety and communication will benefit. This thesis focuses on off-grid microgrids, with no extension to a main...

Howell, R. (author)
As sub-Saharan Africa seeks to address their growing energy demands given financial constraints, limited capital, and poor existing infrastructure; Uganda presents a particularly challenging case among African countries. With a rapidly growing population and economy and rural electricity penetration of only about 5%, the Ugandan government is...

This master thesis shows the process and results of a project for Dr Ten BV. Dr Ten’s redox technology is an alternative for the widely used lead-acid batteries. The technology can resist deep discharge and other battery usage scenarios that are common in East Africa but harmful to lead-acid batteries. The report proposes a feasible way to...
