650 million people worldwide have no access to electricity. For Rwanda it’s 24% of the population, for Zambia 65%, and Malawi 81%. But solar power opens the way for communities to set up their own local energy systems, whether grid-connected or off-grid. Prof. Stuart Galloway describes how Strathclyde University’s SG Global Renewables Centre provides knowledge needed for various stages of the progress – for developing core skills, for connecting off-grid systems to national grids, and for applying business models to run the resulting energy enterprises.
