Energypedia is a wiki-based platform for collaborative knowledge exchange on renewable energy and energy efficiency topics in developing countries.
Today one in five people worldwide lack access to electricity, while every third person cooks on unhealthy fireplaces. First-hand knowledge on modern and sustainable energy solutions often only exists locally or in fragments and thus is difficult for individuals to access. Therefore, there is a great need to facilitate and expand the diffusion of these technologies in developing countries through knowledge exchange and collaboration.
Recognizing that development in the 21st century requires that all actors have access to information, energypedia is working towards removing the knowledge barriers and expanding the diffusion of information addressing the topics renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable energy access for all.
The global pandemic COVID-19 has completely uprooted our lives and changed the way we work. It also has a tremendous impact on the off-grid energy sector. According to a survey by GOGLA, if this situation lasts for more than 3-4 months, many off-grid companies (almost 50%) will not survive. One of the biggest problems of off-grid companies is liquidity. Due to the current situation, customer liquidity has gone down, new sales have decreased, access to capital is either slowed or reduced and this has made it difficult to maintain the infrastructures.
With the current donations we managed to reserach into details that help the reneable energy sector to overcome the challenges posed by the crisis.
Furthermore we collection the most relevant articles in one place. This has helped many renable energy organisations and people affected with no energy access, as the page was already opened more than 3,000 times!
