This Energy Safari focused on fostering productive uses of energy (PUE) in the Arusha region.
Arusha City is the financial and cultural capital of the Arusha region. As is the case with other regions in Tanzania, reliable and affordable energy systems available to citizens and businesses, are crucial for the development of Arusha and surrounding rural area’s. Sadly, the vast majority of urban and rural residents experience a more sobering reality characterized by frequent black-outs, brown-outs, expensive and dirty supply (through diesel generators and charcoal), and in many cases, no access to energy at all.
To explore these issues, the Energy Change Lab organised the second "Energy Safari" in Arusha in January 2018. The safari was a focused five-day learning programme designed to explore the main challenges around PUE and work together on potential new solutions.
