Enable access to modern energy to as many Bolivians as possible. We work in 4 lines of work: 1) Energy for illumunitation - grid densification, mobile solar appliances/lamps 2) Energy for cooking - biomass stoves for households and institution, connection and installation of natural gas appliances for schools 3) Energy for social infrastructure (schools, health centers) - photovoltaic systems, solar water heating, connection and installation of natural gas appliances for schools 4) Energy for productive use - crop transformation, micro irrigation, biogas.
At least 570,000 beneficiaries from 2006-2010 in Bolivia: rural poor communities at the state and national level.
