The general goal of the project is to improve socioeconomic conditions for populations in small villages in the Brakna by allowing them access to electricity services, develop models that can be duplicated on the large scale, and develop the skills of various participants and local actors interested in theses issues.

Notably, the project seeks to test and validate a model schema for small-scale hybrid (solar/diesel) electrification (approximately 10 to 20 kW), involving local populations and institutions and implementing credit mechanisms and innovative public-private partnerships while remaining environmentally friendly.
