Energy Fact sheets
The DRFN’s Energy Fact Sheets are designed as a brief user-friendly and colourful introduction to different aspects related to energy, renewable energy and energy efficiency within a Namibian context. Each fact sheet comprises a single A4 page and discusses a particular topic. The fact sheets are an ideal supplement to school curricula dealing with natural resources.

WISIONS
The Wisions project’s full title is “Business opportunities with solar energy in unelectrified areas”. The main objective was to determine how much money can a small 80W AC solar home system generate from providing services such as cell phone charging, hair cutting and charging of electric lanterns. Through the project, 10 solar business systems were provided to rural and peri-urban entrepreneurs across Namibia and their financial performance monitored for about 18 months.
