Professor Francis Yamba, is the Director of the Center of Energy and Environment at the University of Zambia.He says, "The main objective of the project is to strengthen the main energy players in the sector namely [small to medium scale] energy entrepreneurs, farming communities, suppliers of renewable energy technologies and system designs."

The professor says the project is designed to increase the use of renewable energy, like solar power -- in this case PV (photovoltaic) or a thermal (heat) application.Yamba adds the term "micro hydro" and "biomass" which includes animal waste as well as other materials.

Yamba says in a country like Zambia, where only 3 or 4 percent of the rural community has electricity, renewable energy technology can be important as a source of power to the mostly small- scale farmers.
