CIGRE Next Generation Network Webinar – Design and Development of Energy Solutions for Unelectrified Markets
The focus of this webinar would be on different energy solutions that are available for unelectrified or poorly electrified markets, and some key things to remember about how to successfully disseminate these solutions. Based on her work in sustainable energy solutions for humanitarian needs, particularly in economies with unreliable electricity markets, Jackie will also focus on how young professionals can develop and deploy these electrical energy solutions.
