Everyone was warmly invited to learn about and discuss the power of Solar in Malawi’s schools, health centres, in agriculture and other settings with transformative potential at our recent Renewables Forum on the 10th of November.

We explored,

  • How solar power can best support educational outcomes
  • What role solar has in maternal and neonatal care
  • How solar could energize Scotland- Malawi links
  • Followed by an open session to share experiences and questions with Renewables Experts from Malawi & Scotland

Speakers included:

    Program Coordinator, GIZ Energising Development (EnDev)
  • Elizabeth Banda,
    Energy Project Co-ordinator, United Purpose Malawi
  • Dr Damien Frame,
    Senior Member, Energy for Development team, Institute for Energy & Environment, University of Strathclyde.

Attendees also gained insights and links to resources from the outputs of the Scottish Government-funded, University of Strathclyde EASE Programme.
