This pilot project, funded via the Durham Energy Institute’s interdisciplinary small grants scheme, examined the potential contribution of solar power to development in South Africa’s rural areas, where many of the country’s poorest people reside. The project methodology involved interviews with a variety of institutional actors involved in renewable energy projects and investigations at case study sites in the Western and
Northern Capes. In addition, OWL energy monitors were deployed alongside a household survey form in order to elicit technical data which was analysed by engineering experts.
