UNDP‘s INNOVATION PRIZE DRAFT POLICY!
  • 3. The Core Problem • In Bosnia and Herzegovina more than one million persons displaced during the war have returned to reclaim their lives. • For most of them, houses have been reconstructed and normal living conditions restored, but still more than 3,000 families in the most remote rural areas lack access to power. • In most cases such an investment is not economically justified (for Power Utilities).
  • 4. The Core Problem
  • 5. Our Thoughts • design and develop a sustainable, standalone&cost-effective solution • off-grid renewable energy supply • PV power of 1,25 kWh/day and 120 l/day of DHW • be user friendly • Investment costs not higher than € 5.000

  • 9. the Winner • Renewable Energy Kit was tested in period from August 3, 2013 until September 20, 2013 • The test confirmed that selected solution meets all criteria set by the challenge (it is even better!). • This system works much better than I was expecting, even though it was not expected that laundry machine will work – it works too. I have enough energy for the needs of my family.
