In Kenya where GIZ has been supporting rural electrification efforts through the implementation of mini-grids, the improvement of social, economic and environmental values in the electrified villages is immediately visible. Technical skills are however essential to address the operational challenges that solar village mini-grids require. Talek Power pilot project paved the way in the enhancement of rural electrification in the region. The project demonstrated that solar hybrid mini-grids, when properly designed are also commercially viable.
This report aims at providing guidance to potential project developers through the process of developing and designing an optimum business case of SPV hybrid applications for off-grid power supply in the Philippines.
