The United Nations Foundation’s Energy Access Practitioner Network, in partnership with the Clean Energy Solutions Center, is hosting a no-cost, webinar-based training on the role of micro-grids in promoting access to energy.
Mr. Daniel Schnitzer, EarthSpark International, will be one of the panelists and he will share the findings of a new study he co-authored, “Micro-grids for Rural Electrification: A critical review of best practices based on seven case studies.”
Mr. Schnitzer will highlight the best practices and barriers that were identified through this regional study, providing specific lessons learned from various countries, with a focus on Asia.

EarthSpark International is a 2013 Powering Agriculture Energy Grand Challenge winner that is working to expand access to modern, cleaner energy services to the citizens of Les Anglais, Haiti and nearby agribusinesses (milling facilities) using next generation solar-diesel hybrid smart grid technologies to reliably provide 24 hour, cost competitive electricity service.
Powering Agriculture’s support of EarthSpark International efforts illustrates how sustainable, scalable businesses can (1) improve the economic well-being of everyday Haitian citizens, (2) increase farmer and agribusiness revenues, (3) stimulate low carbon local and regional economic growth, and (4) open up new markets for global goods and services.
