Reliable and affordable energy systems for citizens and businesses are crucial for the city's development. In Dar es Salaam residents experience frequent energy black-outs, expensive, dirty supply, and often no access to energy at all. How can Dar es Salaam's citizens, civil servants and entrepreneurs transform their energy systems to power their lives and businesses?
To explore these issues, the Hivos energy lab and ICT Hub Buni organised an "Energy Safari" in Dar es Salaam in August 2015. The safari was a focused five-day learning programme designed to explore the main challenges around energy access and work together on potential new solutions.
