Demand assessment in Rwanda


MARGE and IB&C are carrying out a demand assessment for a mini-hydro project in Rwanda within the framework of the RESP - Renewable Energy Small Projects - Development Facility implemented by Energy 4 Impact on SIDA funds. The objective of this assignment is to assess the electricity demand and the ability to pay by households (affordability), productive users, social institutions and anchor customers in communities around the generation plant. The results of the demand assessment will inform the developer on the convenience to retail electricity through a mini-grid, rather than feeding into the main grid.
