Challenge EWE 38
Affordable Energy From Renewable Sources

One of the most important challenges is energy supply, especially deprived and rural areas. Since access to the energy distribution grid is difficult or impossible in these regions, the approach of providing energy in the form of on-site production based on the climatic/regional potential will be the most likely solution. The main sources of energy in this approach are sun, wind, water and different forms of bioenergy. The important point for these types of energy is its cost, so that they can not only be competitive with fossil types, but can also be used in deprived areas.
