    Off-Grid Technology Perspectives | The Case of the Solar Lantern

    REGISTER HERE

    **Please note, this special panel will be 90 minutes long.**

    Date: 24 July 2014

    Time: 11:00 a.m. New York, EDT ( convert to your time )

    Speakers: Gaurav Manchanda, CEO, One Degree Solar, Dr. Harald Schützeichel, Founder and Director, Sun-Connect eG and Ned Tozun, President & Founder, d.light

    Moderator: Russell Sturm, Head, Energy Access Advisory at the International Finance Corporation

    About this Webinar:

    Solar lanterns are touted as a cost-saving and clean alternative to kerosene lighting by aid agencies and social business ventures. Data supports this claim, but are solar lanterns really effective in enabling users "up the energy ladder" and alleviating energy poverty? Or are these small-scale, pico solar solutions deterring off-grid communities from pursuing alternatives such as solar home systems? Join us as we explore these questions and more with our off-grid electrification expert panel as they share their perspectives on these ‘go-to’ technologies in global development.

    Presenters:
