Ecuador

Our work with the Shuar in southern Ecuador is continuing. We have to date participated with various partners in the implementation of solar systems in several Shuar villages, as well as training Shuar students in the system maintenance. We have also conducted training in micro hydro resource assessment and participated in the early stages of a continuing project to eventually provide micro-hydro based electricity to two villages. There are over 60 Shuar villages in this remote area with no electricity, and as funding becomes available we continue to support the provision of renewable energy to as many of these villages as possible.
