E7 monitoring project for rural coops in Indonesia
: Using solar, wind and micro-hydro sources, "in 2000, the e7 completed an Activity Implemented Jointly where a limited but reliable amount of electricity was provided to 4000 people in eight remote communities of Sumba, West Timor, and Sulawesi in Indonesia...
it introduced an innovative, sustainable, and decentralised management concept for rural electrification. Small, independent, village-run micro-utilities were created to manage the facilities and assume responsibility for their operation, maintenance, and financial sustainability... In 2001, the e7 decided to embark on a two-year multidisciplinary monitoring program to evaluate the effects.." 11:27:59 PM
E7 MICRO-SOLAR DISTANCE LEARNING PROGRAMME

E7 W-Park Pilot Project
: ".. to assist in the conservation of one of Africa's largest fauna reserves by providing photo-voltaic systems to community facilities around the W Park, which is shared by the three western African countries of Benin, Burkina Faso, and Niger.. The project is set to start in the first semester of 2002 and scheduled for completion in the three countries by the end of 2002. Since the overall project will facilitate the preservation of one of the most precious biodiversity areas of West Africa, the e7 anticipates that the pilot project venture will encourage additional sustainable energy development of the W Park area." 9:28:28 PM
