Technology factsheets

These are a series of factsheets covering key energy technologies that have business potential for micro entrepreneurs in East Africa.

The factsheets have been developed by GVEP for the Developing Energy Enterprises Project - a five year programme set up to provide start-up and growth support to energy-based enterprises in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. Each factsheet provides an overview of the technology, examples and business opportunities.

The factsheets complemented DEEP’s programme of business and energy training and mentoring. The programme has now come to an end but we believe that the factsheets constitute a valuable resource for micro entrepreneurs who may be considering starting-up an energy business.
