It is well documented that solar energy can be an effective means of cleaning contaminated water. This is because ultraviolet (UV) light destroys the formation of DNA linkages in microorganisms, thereby preventing them from reproducing and thus rendering them harmless.

Green minigrids are an increasingly popular option to bring electricity to remote communities. However, many past minigrids projects failed to achieve financial viability. They either stopped functioning, or require continuous injection of subsidies to maintain their operations.

Energy Solutions in Rural Africa: Mapping Electrification Costs of Distributed Solar and Diesel Generation Versus Grid ExtensionType:PublicationPublication date:
Three rural electrification options are analysed showing the cost optimal conditions for a sustainable energy development applying renewable energy sources in Africa. A spatial electricity cost model has been designed to point out whether diesel generators, photovoltaic systems or extension of the grid are the least-cost option in off-grid areas. The resulting mapping application offers support to decide in which regions the communities could be electrified either within the grid or in an isolated mini-grid.
