Type of publication:

With the publication of this catalogue, the BMZ-funded GIZ sector program ‘Basic Energy Services (HERA)’ provides a market overview of DC-powered appliances, useful for developing and strengthening business activities in rural areas. This 1st Edition does not claim to provide a conclusive and comprehensive picture but rather to offer an overview of selected appliances available on the market today, complemented with elemental technical details, established distribution channels and, where possible, practical experiences from the field. The catalogue is directed at practitioners and public and private sector actors promoting PV for productive use of energy.
