OpenEI/CETSI/Highlights The lessons learned pertain to the develop
The lessons learned pertain to the development of rural electrification programs and are categorized in 4 main areas: (1) Institutional aspects, which reflect the support required through planning, partnering, program design, and execution of a village power program (2) Pilot project characteristics, which describe performance, technology selection, and deployment considerations (3) Implementation process, which discusses the duration, administration, and types of solutions to consider for a village power program (4) Operational issues, which summarizes best practices to ensure pilot project success through metering, maintenance programs, and demand side efficiency.

OpenEI/CETSI/Overview This resource provides a summary of lesson
This resource provides a summary of lessons learned through the NREL Village Power Program, which helped provide assistance for rural community electrification in 20 countries around the world.  The lessons cut across the Village Power projects and identify common themes that apply to all rural communities who are starting to develop off grid applications and pilot projects for electrical power.  The lessons learned can assist any rural community starting the energy transformation process by understanding best practices and potential pitfalls.  This resource provides useful information on engaging the right people, evaluating technical options, selecting appropriate financing strategies, and understanding the effectiveness of a program.
