Evaluation of Sustainability of Solar Powered Water Supply Systems in Kenya

Evaluated the effectiveness, affordability, relevance and efficiency of solar water supply systems in reducing the medium and long-term recurrent costs of WASH projects in refugee and IDP camps and their local host communities. Various powering technologies such as standalone solar systems, solar-electricity systems, diesel powered, and electric systems were evaluated at 40 sites; and a total of 523 surveys were also conducted. The Global Solar and Water Initiative aims to improve the cost effectiveness and sustainability of water schemes in refugee camps through incorporation of renewable energy
