Workshop: Access to sustainable energy and ICT for the base of the pyramid
In 2007 the massive continent of Africa had only two million fixed broadband subscribers and a stunning 3 billion people still use traditional biomass for cooking. Consequences on the affected populations at the base of the pyramid in terms of health, education, environment, well-being or development are tremendous.
These 2 challenges represent an unique opportunity where ICT and Energy solutions could be combined to achieve bigger impact. This workshop aims to identify opportunities to approach the enormous “bottom of pyramid” and meet the challenges with ICT/Energy solutions. A maximum of 30 delegates can sign in for their participation by sending an email to Nicolas Chevrollier.
