wrap up

and so it comes to an end. more than 30 villages visited, across six states. hundreds of hours driving through india's remote plains, rolling hills, and majestic mountains. wading through torrential rains and and breathing in blazing dry heat. inspiring visits with CEOs, staff, and volunteers from companies and organizations in delhi, calcutta, mumbai, bangalore, and hyderabad. dozens and dozens cups of chai.

the presentation below relates key trends in india's small-scale solar lighting market that i identified through my company case studies, field visits, interviews, and literary research. some of these themes I have written on in more depth in previous posts -- others are new ideas that i haven't touched on yet.

i've put the presentation directly into this post, but a complete copy of the powerpoint can also be downloaded here (just click on this link). comments, corrections, thoughts, advice, questions are all welcome -- either right here on the blog or to solarvillagesindia@gmail.com.

thank you for following me through this incredible adventure.

  2. Keep up the good work Ms Emily. I sure wish there a couple more like you and we could have by now illuminated a good number of villages. Unfortunately the availability and utility of Solar Lanterns is still unknown to a considerable amount of population in India, this is not just limited in the rural sectors. Solar Lighting technology would be very efficient even in suburbs and cities. the street lights and park lights could be charged using solar energy.
    I myself have been using a solar lantern for a while now and i have noticed the change in my electrical consumption. I purchased the lamp from NIMH Technolinks(http://www.nimh.in/). If required you can get in touch with them for your noble work.

    And once again, kudos to you Ms Emily. :)
