Title: e.quinox: Our Solution to Rural Electrification
e.quinox is a student-‐led initiative started in 2008 at Imperial College London, aiming to bridge the gap between the classroom and the real world by
bringing cost-‐effective renewable energy solutions to developing countries. We believe that technology can be the solution to many problems we face today, and that electricity provides a fundamental basis for a good quality of life.
Since our inception, we have implemented three ‘Energy Kiosk’ projects in rural Rwanda, providing electricity to more than 400 households. Our projects aim to be financially sustainable, both to our customers and to the initiator.
