Title: Energy Demonstration Trailer in Namibia
The Energy Demonstration Trailer was produced to raise awareness and disseminate information about renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies and practices for urban, rural and peri-urban Namibian settlements. Emphasis is placed on the energy services (cooking, lighting, refrigeration, entertainment and business) that these technologies can provide. The Trailer is a vehicle-drawn off-road trailer with the ability to reach remote areas. It is powered using solar and wind electricity and has a high degree of user-friendliness. The trailer includes extensive camping equipment allowing operators to spend prolonged periods in the field in comfort. Therefore it is a good demonstration device for possible applications of renewable energy.
